This book must be the definative statement on birds of paradise and it is not surprising that it took nearly a decade to collect the necessary information and pictures.
39 species are described from New Guinea,the Mollucas and eastern Australia.
Following a text on the habitat of the birds,which is accompanied by magnificent pictures, there is a species atlas of the 39 birds with additional pictures,short essay,range map,elevation range,relative size,voice description and conservation status.
A truely remarkeable book that has to be seen. Deserves 10 stars.

-----------------------------------------------
P.S.There would appear to be a 40th bird which is not in the book namely the Growling Riflebird (Ptiloris intercedens)

This book will be the only way that most birders will see these species except for the Paradise Riflebird which is easily accessible in Queensland, where I saw and heard it. The photographs are exceptional and the text very informative. The birds plumage is unbelievable as is their display. This book would be a treasured member of any one's bookshelf if they wish to experience the sheer wonder of those travellers who have visited New Guinea and seen the living birds.

This is the book on birds of paradise that I've been seeking for some time. Saw the authors in a Richard Attenborough documentary and googling them found this. As other reviewers have noted the photography is sumptuous and the accompanying text highly informative. Just one criticism, a splendid book such this deserves better printing of text (printed in China). Most of the pages of text are in extremely light, almost silver rather than black, print, spoiling the reading experience. National Geographic Book Division, how could you have missed this deficiency?

The efforts of this whole project is just mindbogglingly complex. Tim Laman and team has created the ultimate publication of Birds of Paradise - above the normal standard of National Geographic. If you are a birder or nature lover this is simply a 'must buy'. Highly recommended!

This book is outstanding the coloured photos are excellent no wonder it took so long to finish there is a small amount of details and where the birds live but it is the photos that really impress me, Recommended highly.

Totally recommended. An outstanding project comes to book. Amazing pictures, behind the scenes and effort from the authors that all nature and wildlife photographers should have.

An amazing book, a true dedication to these intrepid photographers who battled everything New Guinea could throw at them and came back with wonderful photos.
