4.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a classic, 19 Mar 2013
First off I own not only a Peterson but the Sibley and Nat Geo guides to North America, and have to say that all three combined gives a solid base to work from. The Sibley has little or no text, but in my opion the best plates and the opposite of that could be said of the Nat Geo field guide, the Peterson is like a mix of the two. The thing about these three is they have very different styles and so attract there own set of fans, but truth be told anyone of these three including the Peterson will do the job, my advice don't be tight and buy all three (only joking) look through all three before buying and pick the one best suited to you. I for one really like the Peterson but use Sibleys… Read more

Having been to Afgan a few times and seen a lot of birds whilst there I always had a bit of a problem with field guides for the area, i.e. there are none readily available.

J. R. R. Tolkien: A Biography by Humphrey Carpenter
J. R. R. Tolkien: A Biography by Humphrey Carpenter
First off this is the only book about Tolkien I have read (as in biography) and I'm not saying its the best because I can't without reading the others first, but I am saying that I really enjoyed learning about the man and the myths and to that end this book has been brilliant I also can quit honestly say that I never really knew middle earth took so much time to create, what Tolkein did was well above and beyond anything I could do, and so I salute this great man and this book for letting me see into the life of JRR Tolkein.

In Summary I feel that JRR Tolkeins life was covered very well by the Auther and done in a fair review more over it is well written and great to read.
