Overall, an excellently organised guide book, standard "field guide" size, without the feeling of there being a loss of information. We have the big book here too (for all of NA) and it seems to contain the same information so bigger isn't neccessarily better! I recommend the two regional guides instead: less birds to decipher between and easier to carry with you in the field!
In addition, I still think Peterson's paintings are the best in presenting the birds in a manner closest to how they look in the field. Sibley's paintings are a bit stark compared to the real thing. On a recent trip to Madera Canyon, I noted this when looking, in particular, at a Lazuli Bunting, and a Rufous-Winged Sparrow.
Sibley's new guide is very good, but I still keep "Roger" in the fanny pack, and Sibley back in the car as reference.
I especially liked the multiple views of each species, and the views of immature and sub adult birds.
As far as I can tell, all the information, such as the range maps,as presented, is based on the best information available and is current.
I have several bird identification books and I use this one more then all the others combined.
One little thing that I would have appreciated is getting birds dimensions in centimeters as well as in inches. Birds weight is already in ounces and grams.
I'm hoping that one day, we'll get the whole North American version in one book and in that format.
