One of The Guardian’s Best Nature Books of 2013, chosen by Stephen Moss
[The Crossley ID Guide series focuses] on maximising your chances of correctly identifying species by ramping up the number and variety of species images within the guide and placing these images within typical habitats. . . . Each beautiful plate is painstakingly filled with images of hundreds of individual species in different settings or from different angles to help recreate how you might encounter it.---Kate Jones, New Scientist
This book is beyond excellent and there won't be a birder in Europe and beyond who won't be hoping to find this in their Xmas stocking!---Bo Beolens, Fat Birder
The Crossley Guide has something for everyone. I would suggest this book is an absolute must for beginners or novice birders. I can think of no better format that I have seen that caters for this audience. The species are set out in an order that immediately aids comparison between similar species and most are shown in flight and in all plumages.---Paul Freestone, Cornwall Birding
Although clearly directed at the more novice birdwatchers amongst us, I see much merit and use for this within the more experienced members of the community--well worth keeping a copy in the car and well worthy of perusal. Overall, a thoroughly recommended purchase.---Lee G R Evans, UK400ClubRareBirdAlert
Overall I think this book is superb and it should be on every birders Christmas list or even a treat for yourself as you buy presents this year. For the target audience this really is the book they've been waiting for and it is one every birder should recommend to a friend who is starting to get interested in birds. . . . My book of the year.---John Hague, Drunk Birder
For me this new volume will be essential as an additional aid in identifying difficult species. (Derek Bird Brain)
This photographic field guide is different, and quite informative. Each species is presented as a number of small individual photographs mounted on a full-page photograph of their typical preferred habitat. . . . Mostly targeted to beginners to use in the field, but it is detailed enough to be a useful study guide for more advanced birders, too.---Devorah Bennu, GrrlScientist at The Guardian
Informative, unique and enthusiastically written, with something for everyone. Sure to be an excellent addition to many a bookshelf and a core reference for those building on their bird ID skills.---Anthony Hurd, Birding Frontiers
From the Back Cover
"The book looks fabulous. For me, it spans the gap between the traditional field guide with paintings and the newer guides with photographs. It is the best of both worlds. Now there's no excuse not to identify everything correctly!"--Nick Baker, Wildlife TV Presenter and Naturalist
"Bright, bold, clean-looking and easy to use, it is not just an identification guide--it is a celebration of our birds and how they fit into our landscape."--Andy Stoddart

This book is well written, has numerous pictures of the same bird in different phases of age making IDing much easier.
My ambition is to learn about birds in different parts of the world, and this book is a great start.
I am completely satisfied and proud to add "The Crossley ID Guide of Britain and Ireland" to my birding library.
Yes, I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to broaden their knowledge of birds in other lands.
