A large book, it has space for individual notes and comments as well.
It is pretty expensive at $60+ but I received a sale item and a large discount which made it very affordable.

the size ,with 28,5 & 22 cm it's a lot bigger than the Howard + Moore and Sibley + Monroe books , which leaves a lot of space to make your notes inside the book ,like I do ,
very good binding and of course the complete listing of all the bird species and subspecies .
Not so good :
the splitting into species goes in my opinion a little to far ,especially by the Australian species .
some species of the checklist are also listed as subspecies by species from which they were split ,with a little proofreading this could have been avoided .
For the price amazon is asking ,this book is a must if you want a checklist of the birds of the world .
