I am slowly working through my copy. Though I have barely scratched the surface, I must say that I am impressed.

It is a monumental work, around 760 pages! Stuffed with interesting facts.

Lots to learn! :dance:

I am proud brag that the author of the Beat about the Bush books, Trevor Carnaby, is my cousin.
He has had many years in the field and his knowledge is astounding, I think he is a modern Richard Attenborough. His love for the bush started in Kruger and it is wonderful to see the fruit of that love.
The new Bird book in particular is amazing.
I would highly recommend all 3 books. They are easy to use and very informative and the photo's are great to.

Subjective praise I know but well deserved nontheless.

I accquired this book for Christmas last year. I must say that it is incredibly informative. Not a guide for bird idenification, though, as it deals with the various aspects of bird behaviour in great detail. What I do enjoy it that much of the information is not just presented to the reader, but has personal accounts to back it up and put it into prespective.

Definately a reccomended buy, as is Beat About the Bush: Mammals. Should purchased with a field guide, though!

I think the first version had mammals and birds combined. After which it was split into two books, one for mammals and one for birds.
