Recensione:

As one might expect from Elphick, there is a platinum standard to the book s accuracy...it is also bang up to date...this is a wonderfully authoritative, but also carefully compressed, statement on all things avian. My guess is that it will be a baseline reference for years to come. --Mark Cocker, Birdwatch magazine

Weighty this book may be, but Elphick displays a light touch, his unfussy writing clarifying difficult concepts...encyclopaedic in both ambition and achievement, and a tome to be treasured. --BBC Wildlife magazine, Book of the Month

As thorough and as all-encompassing as you could hope, given the scale of the task, while also being readable and easily understood...Erudite but accessible, and looking absolutely great, you can imagine this becoming a fixture on most birders shelves. --Birdwatching magazine
