"We have waited some considerable time for a modern and usable
field guide to West African birds. Nik Borrow and Ron Demey clearly have
extensive field experience over many years in the region. Their knowledge
and expertise shines through in this excellent field guide to one of the
world's most exciting birding regions, and both are to be congratulated for
completing the task admirably." -- Bull ABC, January 2007
