"Finally. The first single-volume guide for eastern Asia, and it's exquisitely illustrated." --Matt Mendenhall, Birder's World

"Although northeastern Asia boasts a number of regional endemics and is a source of many actual and potential vagrants to North America, the region has been sorely lacking a modern field guide. . . . Birds of East Asia finally provides a treatment that meets the standards expected for modern field guides. . . . I will certainly take it with me on any future visits to the region. That's a compliment I cannot offer any other current or past field guide to the region." --Nick Lethaby, Birder

"Any birder planning to visit this fascinating part of the world will want to get Birds of East Asia for their trip." --Federick Brock, Wildlife Activist

"Eastern Asia, in a biological sense, represents one of the last great frontiers, even for a group as generally well known as birds. Brazil, a field ornithologist with considerable experience with Asian avifauna, has produced the first comprehensive guide to birds of the region. . . . This is an excellent field guide and reference book. Birders who travel extensively in East Asia (or who want to) will own a copy as will any library with strong ornithological holdings." --Choice

"This interesting guide, which covers major islands including Japan and Taiwan, as well as the Asian continent from Kamchatka to the Korean peninsula, is amply illustrated with a plethora of color plates and maps that will provide any traveler with the information necessary to identify any bird of this vast region." --Indiana Audubon Quarterly
