Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Let's face it--all birds are fascinating, wonderful, idiotic jerks--no matter where in the world they reside.

Following in the footsteps of the bestselling book The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of North America, this hilarious sequel ventures beyond to identify the stupidest birds around the world. Featuring birds from North and South America, Africa, Asia, Europe, and Oceania, author Matt Kracht identifies the dumb birds that manage to live all over the freaking place with snarky, yet accurate, names and humorous, anger-filled drawings.

This guide book details exactly how much these morons suck with facts about each bird's (annoying) call, its (stupid) migratory pattern, and its (downright tacky) markings. Complete with a matching game, bird descriptor checklist, tips on how to identify a bird (you can tell a lot by looking into a bird's eyes, for example), this profanity-laden book offers a balance of fact and wit that will appeal to hardcore birders and casual bird lovers (and haters) alike.

A MUST-HAVE: A must-have sequel to the bestselling parody book The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of North America.

UNIQUE & LAUGH-OUT-LOUD FUNY: This is a great coffee table or bar top conversation-starting book. And a bonus, while the content is humorous, it is practical and Read More chevron_right

   Funny, irreverent and interesting
This is for anyone who has been frustrated by a bird that keeps just out of view or who has been caught in a shower while looking for birds. There is a lot to learn between laughs.
I was surprised by the unexpected names the author gave the birds. The correct name of the bird is given by the author. The drawings are by the author. You get some facts about the bird, even though it's funny. He covered birds in North and South America, Africa, Asia, Europe' and Oceania. There is a bird drawing game and a bird descriptor checklist. It tells you things that annoy him. It will give you facts with a sarcastic wit. I was not aware that it was a sequel to a previous book. The book is called The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of North America. I did not have to write a positive review of this book. The opinions are mine alone.
This would have been a great book if it weren't for the profanity. I wasn't prepared for that. I was very disappointed that it wasn't funny or charming.
   A marvelous sequel
One of the funniest books I have read in a long time is a sequel. It is more of the same but that does not work against it. Kracht adds more birds and curses to give the people what they want. This is where the tools to get one started and integrated into birdwatching are present. It is obvious from the moment he dedicates the book that it is fun. If you liked the first one, you will get more laughs, but don't expect anything different if it wasn't your jam the first time around. His previous book will be on my coffee table as well. Many thanks to NetGalley and Chronicle Books for the advance read.
   Kept me giggling!
I bought the first book, The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of the Whole Stupid World, after reading it. I could not wait for another one. This one was excellent. I loved it. I kept laughing at the silly descriptions of birds, the drawings, and the added notes. That's correct! Adding a whole world of birds to pick from really added to the fun. There was a bit of education in there. I just read it for fun. I like birds and humor so this was perfect. This would be a perfect gift for a bird lover. The new exercises at the end of the book were great. That was fun! So funny. Will be buying this after it comes out. I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for letting me read this book.
