Media reviews

&i;"If you are a world lister, you will want to have this book. But if you are at all interested in the conservation of birds, you should buy it too".&o;
- Keith Betton, Birding World.

&i;"It is the best of books, it is the worst of books. It is a book of hope, it is a book of despair; it is a book of beauty, it is a book of ugliness; it is a book about human folly, it is a book about human wisdom. It is the Rare Birds Yearbook for 2008".&o;
- Simon Barnes, The Times, UK

&i;"This book does more than any other to bring these birds to our attention".&o;
- BirdGuides, Dave Gosney

&i;"Rare Birds Yearbook 2008 is a superb effort which not only focuses on an important conservation theme, but raises money for its cause".&o;
- Birdwatch, February 2008
