Start your review of Understanding the Bird of Prey
This is a very detailed and authoritative text which is geared toward the seasoned falconer or serious falconry enthusiast. All aspects of falconry are covered which can be a bit overwhelming.

An indispensable volume for falconers, but probably overkill for anyone whose interest in birds of prey does not centered around falconry.
