This is a good book for the field, although it is possibly a bit too dense for general use. Its brevity and quality make it ideal for the field and for amateur naturalists at home. It is also useful for the study of mammals.

In addition to her work on this book, Rasmussen has written Birds of the World (2014), a comprehensive guide to the world's birds, and she also writes the popular David Attenborough's World (2014).

The new guide is packed with information, but it is much more than a field guide. It is a work of applied ornithology. Each colour plate is accompanied by a thorough, detailed, bird description, and a short field identification key. It is written in a very readable style, is clearly and logically presented, and is very helpful for beginners. It is also comprehensive, covering the entire Indian subcontinent.
