Review:

Praise for Princeton's previous edition: "If you are headed to southern Africa for the first time, you can put this in your pocket and take it into the field, and it will give you an excellent overview."--Stuart Keith, Birding

"Africa can be the birding destination of a lifetime, and with the comprehensive and detailed Birds of Southern Africa, any birder can feel well prepared for the diverse avifauna they will encounter no matter where they may be visiting in the region."---Melissa Hayntz, About.com Birding
