It has a good layout, and is easy to read. If you are a first time bird owner don't use the species guide. (It contains inacurate information about the female eclectus, and doesn't give enough information for a novice.) Borrow it from a library, and read it first. Then consider adding it to your bird book collection.

This books contains everything you need to know about buying, owning, feeding, and training a bird. It will help you determine which kind of bird, what size of cage, what to feed, and methods of training. It even tells you what constitutes a veterinary emergency, and all in layman's terms. Easy to understand and unbelievably helpful!

I have Read Many, Many Books on birds, But I can tell you that if this book doesnt help then you havent read it. :) This is one of the best you will ever find anywhere. It talks about many different birds. It has many helpful hints, too. I will always treasure this book of all the others. I also Enjoy the referance card at the beginning of the book, and Chapter 10 to help me Know what kind food the birds like best.
