About this book

With his first book, How to Be a Better Birder: Travel Stories, Michael Ketover emerges as an exciting voice in travel writing. Ketover blends the power of observation with global personal experience into an entertaining and provocative mixture of powerful tales. Ketover focuses on the birds and the joy in their songs amidst disrespect, lunacy, and violence. Maybe the extra attention to birds in his world will make you feel a bit more connected to the simple beauty of birds in your own.

Media reviews

"[...] The stories are well-written, evocative, and engrossing. It says much about the book that I still enjoyed most of it even though I was disappointed it was not really about birds as I was expecting. The book will not help the reader to be a better birder. However, if it helps open the eyes to how others live and to issues plaguing our world today it might help you be a better person."
