"Identifying birds is a science and an art, involving far more than merely memorizing field marks. Steve Howell and Brian Sullivan are leading masters of this craft, and they share a wealth of inside knowledge in this gem of a book. If you're a birder at any level of experience, from beginner to expert, read this book from cover to cover and I guarantee it will improve your skills in the field." -- Kenn Kaufman, author of the Kaufman Field Guide to Advanced Birding
" . . . if you are going to have a book-based conversation with bird experts about identification, Howell and Sullivan are going to be at the top of the list. . . .
[The Peterson Guide to Bird Identification--In 12 Steps] is a highly opinionated book reflecting the approach and thoughts of the authors. Which is exactly what makes it a book that all birders should read, consult, and maybe even, like me, read again."
-- Donna Schulman, 10,000 Birds.com
"This book is friendly, non-intimidating, and even humorous. New birders can acquire some basics from this handy little book, and experienced birders can pick up some vital pointers, especially useful when helping the uninitiated. . . . Basically, there is something in this short book for every birder, and the 152 pages present many opportunities for all birders to pick out and explore what that 'something' may be." --Paul J. Baicich and Wayne Petersen, Birding Community E-bulletin
