This is a typical Peterson Field Guide. Great color plates, good information, and clear maps. The only downside is that the descriptions, images and maps are not on the same page. Peterson guides lump all of the images in the middle of the book, the maps at the end, and the descriptions start in the beginning and continue after the images. This is a good European book, I personally don't like the layout.
