From the Back Cover

COMPREHENSIVE, EASY TO USE, HIGHLY ILLUSTRATED

For nearly forty years the 'Peterson' guide has been the standard field guide to the birds of Britain and Europe, providing a concise guide to the essential features of bird recognition. This new edition has been completely reconstructed from the first page to the last: the text has been completely rewritten, all the plates have been repainted (the number has increased from 77 to 96) and reorganised and all the maps have been brought up to date. But this is not a field guide for the expert but, in the words of the artist, who is known throughout the world for his classic guides, 'the purpose of this field guide is to make it easier for 999 out of 1,000 readers to identify birds'.
