4.0 out of 5 stars It does what it says on the cover., 3 Feb. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Birds of India and Nepal (Photographic Guide to...) (Paperback)
I was tempted to buy this little book as the cover price meant that even if it was not really what I wanted I would not be spending too much. I did a 'bundle' with other books so that I got so-called free delivery.
It has arrived and is really quite a pleasing little book. Handy enough to carry around and it will prove a great aid to the casual bird watcher in place of a weightier tome. In this the author is to be commended. Of course with 1200 species of Indian bird not all are going to be in a book this size and they are'n't. No matter. It will be useful to give someone a good grounding on a short holiday which is the market it is aimed at.
Pictures are mostly good (It is damned hard to get some clear shots as I know.)The only thing I would put on the 'improvement' list is the location maps. Light Grey areas on a white map are difficult to see. Colour may add a bit to processing/printing so if sticking to monochrome then the toner needs darkening. Even black would be preferable.
But Bikram has done a creditable job for the money. I like it enough to recommend it to those folk visiting the sub continent to do more than lay on a beach, shin up a mountain or gaze at monuments
