A must have for those with a serious interest in Ospreys. -- Ian Paulsen * Birdbooker Report * [Poole's] excellent book is easy reading and very informative. It is also full of great color photographs and informative maps. I recommend it to anyone interested in these fascinating birds. -- Fritz H. Brock * Wildlife Activist * No other book contains as much information from everywhere within the bird's almost uniquely global range... [Ospreys: The Revival of a Global Raptor] is a very well-written, clear and enjoyable account of a bird that has almost universal popularity in the modern world... I recommend it strongly. -- Ian Francis * Scottish Birds * With such a cosmopolitan species and the breadth of topics he touches upon, Poole has done an admirable job constructing a cohesive narrative... Poole's very readable prose makes it accessible for the layperson despite the quantity of information presented... I thoroughly enjoyed reading [Ospreys: The Revival of a Global Raptor] and would highly recommend it to both novice naturalist and experienced birder alike. -- Robert F. Foster * The Canadian Field-Naturalist *
