“A unique combination of abilities has gone into the production of this book, which so
attractively encapsulates the far ranging experiences of a lifetime’s commitment to its
topic. It is tempting to say that it will be the pinnacle publication on aviculture as relating
to the finches and other seed-eating birds, but the last work in any human endeavour is
seldom written. Rather, let me say that this is a superlative presentation of the cultivation
of the finches at the dawn of the 21st Century, worthy and fit to inspire the rising new
generation of aviculturists.”
