| ||"I have only heard good reports about this book and I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone with an interest in birds. If there are still any birdwatchers out there suffering from ‘shorebird phobia’, that is the belief that ‘all shorebirds look the same and therefore can’t be identified!’ then this is the book to help cure that disease."
Greg Clancy, Australian Zoologist, Vol 35 No 1, 2009
"This is a magnificent publication and I commend the authors…"
Noel Tait, Australian Zoologist, Vol 35 No 1, 2009
"Overall, the book is a welcome update on the information available on shorebirds in Australia. Waderologists and other bird watchers from beginners to the most experienced will find it an interesting and informative read."
Rosalind Jessop, Waterbirds, March 2009
"...this is a first-class book which everyone interested in waders worldwide, from beginner to expert, will find interesting and valuable. "
Clive Minton, International Wader Study Group Bulletin 114, December 2007
"These Queensland Wader Study Group members have written a real treat for birdos and anyone with an interest in natural history. Every chapter is great and all contain gems new to even the most knowledgable shorebird aficionado."
Greg Miller, WILDLIFE Australia Magazine, Spring 2007
"This is an excellent example of a shorebirds book. It is well thought out and constructed and therefore is something for all with an interest in the group or who are wanting to know about the birds, in Australia, from scratch. Overall, this fine, handy-size book is recommended without reservation."
Fred TH Smith, The Bird Observer, October 2007
"This is a magnificent publication combining informative and well-written text with excellent maps and an impressive collection of photographs."
