Tough one, mate. Really depends on what you're looking for.

" Collins Bird Guide " is probably THE British and European bird ID book. But, one must always be aware that the average 'back yard birder' type may well be overwhelmed by so many birds.

Want something outside the box?

" The Balance of Nature " by George Abbey. Very old book. It has been reprinted lately. Certainly available through a quick google. I really think every fukker on this site could do with reading it. Seriously.

Just finished Hiroshima, not as good as I hoped for tbh. 

A little insipid for my taste, didn't get my juices flowing. 

 

Fukk sake, mate! ' I read it at school ' ? 'Course Work' kind of thing? Did you expect " Flash Fried Fifty Shades Of Grey " ?

Seeing as it was on the list of greatest factual books ever, I expected more. 

I think the Japs handled it better than we would have tbh. 😂
