Do you care nothing for birds and have no desire to possess any knowledge of them? This book is not for you. Are you a serious ornithologist who can wax on for hours about birds in minute detail? This book is also not for you. Offended by cursing or crass language? You guessed it. Stay away from this book. But if you are someone who enjoys some casual bird watching and possesses a healthy sense of humor and the ability to laugh at yourself, this might just be a book you would enjoy perusing.
In the sequel to The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of North America, Matt Kracht takes us through another adventure in The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of the Whole Stupid World. No longer must we contain our distain of various bird habits to a single continent but can instead shake our heads at birds around the world. Kracht effortlessly slides in factual information while having us quietly chuckle along with his outrageous descriptions of our fine-feather frenemies.
