Tom Keneally is arguably one of Australia's greatest writers. The depth of research in this book makes it all the more fascinating, readable and credible. Not having studied any Australian history since my schoolgirl experiences, I looked forward to this book to provide me with insights into the earliest interactions with indigenous Australians and expand my knowledge and understanding of the difficulties and achievements, the mentality and huge mistakes during those founding years of white settlement. I was not disappointed. It is not a dry history text by any means - this book is closer to an oral history written down - human, empathetic, amusing and insightful.

Forget what the critical critics have said. This film has the fabulous feel-good factor. It doesn't matter that Pierce Brosnan can't sing very well - you'll love him anyway. Everyone is having a ball, everyone gives their all. It's funny, silly, sing-along fun. I went out and bought some more ABBA music as a result and watch this movie when I need to have my spirits lifted on rainy Sunday afternoons.

This book is small enough to carry into the field and comprehensive enough to cover all needs. The descriptions and illustrations are excellent and thorough. The perfect guide to birds of Europe.
