5.0 out of 5 stars If you liked the first edition, you'll love this second edition.
A masterful piece of work, with larger, clearer illustrations and many more species included. The revised layout makes the book a joy to use.

Everything that you read about this book on Amazon.uk is true. The book is amazing, is truly a bible for the birds of north America. But the dark colours ruined all the excellent artist job done by David Sibley. There is already a second printing available that, for what I read, resolved all the problems of the previous printing, but it's impossible to know which one you gonna get when you're ordering, if Amazon.uk doesn't a separation between the two printings... it's all a question of luck, on the end... Really bad job for the publisher... My advice: don't buy this book if you're not sure that is the second printing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Spoiled by colour problems, 6 July 2014

This review is from: The Sibley Guide to Birds (Flexibound)
I have had the marvellous first edition of this book for over ten years, and I hastily bought this updated second edition as soon as it came out.

But there are two problems with this new edition. These problems are not with what the author has produced, but with the printing. Firstly, the colours on some of the bird illustrations are too dark. Secondly, the print of much of the text is a sort of faint grey colour instead of black, and also rather small, making it difficult to read.

There has been a lot of discussion about this on the American Amazon website (Amazon.com), and it seems there is the possibility of changes being made when a new print run is produced by the publishers.
