5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding !, 22 Dec 2012
The many photographs are really good. I havelots of birdbooks with photographs of the birds of course, but these are outstanding. The calls also are so realistic that i am almost looking round for the bird! I saw a waxwing a few days ago, but it was silent. Now I know what it would have sounded like if it had been calling or singing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Babylon's Ark, 11 May 2012
An unforgettable book. This is a side of the war in Iraq that we were unaware of. The rescue of the neglected animals, and finding food for them when the people themselves were permanently hungry makes riveting reading. The help from the US army in the Zoo area was good to read about. I had just finished reading the Elephant Whisperer by Lawrence Anthony and his insight and care for the elephants in South Africa and the zoo animals in Baghdad was special.
