I superb book, even if you just want to look at the photos!
As the book was written a few years ago it can't have predicted the phenomenal technological increases in digital cameras, which sees ultra high ISO's with little or no noise, and the advances in autofocus technology, which makes photographing moving subjects a relatively straightforward affair now as long as you set your camera correctly!
In summary - a good starting point for wild bird capture, but for me, lacks any really inspiring shots.
