Author Jim Robbins has a wonderful way of writing with both depth and bredth that is extremely accessible and fun. Bird stories in this book range from fascinating scientific discussions of bird evolution and behavior, to the history and impact of birds on human life, to heart wrenching tales of birds helping inner city kids. It has something for everyone, whether you're just curious about nature, a history buff, a human interest story lover, or hardcore birdwatcher. The Audible narration is overall very good, although the narrator does occassionally mispronounce some words in a way that is distracting.

This book ranged from very engaging to mind-numbing. The first few chapters were great, but as we got to the chapters on the bird brain and language, we just about gave up. Like many books, this would benefit from and editor who would shorten the book by keep the author on topic and limiting the social cause diversions. Overall, it was informative and entertaining. If I were listening again, I would skip a few chapters.
