Not a book to be read from beginning to end, but one to be dipped into for information. You will consult it for the answer to your specific query, then you'll be drawn in further and further; until, suddenly, you'll realise an hour has gone by and you're still reading, but you're reading about a completely different bird and you're making exclamations to yourself such as "Good grief, I never knew that!", "How did they find that out?!" and "Absolutely amazing!", etc, etc. A gripping read without you realising you've been gripped. A tour de force. Worth every penny.
