"[...] The Stokes Essential Pocket Guide to the Birds of North America is informative, extremely attractive, and easily portable, making it an excellent field guide for a beginning birder or anyone who appreciates birds or is curious about them, but doesn’t consider themselves a full-fledged birder."
- Grant McCreary (17-03-2015), read the full review at The Birder's Library
