"No group of birds in the world is more beautiful and more intriguing to science than the birds of paradise. Surprisingly, no book showing them displaying in the wild has been done before. But to gain such perspectives and develop such a wonderful collection of pictures has taken years. The result is truly breathtaking."
--Sir David Attenborough, filmmaker and creator of Life on Earth
"You’ll initially find it hard to believe that these pictures are real—but they are. These are the most beautiful photographs of the world’s most beautiful birds. The birds’ behavior, richly described in the text, is as remarkable as their appearance. This is a book like no other book."
--Jared Diamond, ornithologist and author of Guns, Germs, and Steel
“The resulting extremes of color, form and behavior are beautifully documented in Schole's new book, co-authored with photographer Tim Laman.” –Sciencefriday.com
“The exhibit “Birds of Paradise” at the National Geographic museum in Washington, along with a book by Tim Laman and Edwin Scholes, offers research, photographs and video of the 39 species of the bird…” –The Wall Street Journal

It's commendable how dedicated the team was to bring these pictures to us. The book describes the process that took several years and some uncomfortable situations to complete. Of course there is also good information on the birds themselves.
