This is packed with facts, research and studies on ravens. Despite being a university professor and having published many scientific papers, Mind of the Raven is an accessible and enjoyable read for the more intellectually-challenged among us (i.e. me). I learned a lot about ravens and gained a much deeper understanding of their behaviour and love for the mysterious raven from this book.
A fascinating book about fascinating birds.
I only read this having after read 'Why We Run' by Bernd Heinrich.
He seems to make everything captivating by talking about science, being descriptive and unsolves puzzles as the book goes on. It's like you're almost him and experiencing what he has done first hand.
Bernd is an interesting man himself, far from average and that results in interesting unique reads.
Would recommend him as an author despite reading only 2 of his books.
Will most likely read some more from him.
Excellent reading for anyone interested in the natural world and what we are doing to it.
