I purchased this as a present for a family member who was going on a trip out for the day to visit and fly birds of prey so this book was gratefully received. The quality of the pictures is superb and the easy to read but very informative text is suitable for all and very well written. I would recommend this to anyone with an interest in birds of prey. It really is, in the person I bought it for opinion, the best book of its type that they have seen. The book covers in depth its subject yet remains suitable for persons of all knowledge levels on this topic. Very pleased and happy with it and have nothing negative to say at all.
