From noted professional Carl R. Sams II (http://www.strangerinthewoods.com/ & http://www.carlsams.com/) via e-mail: "Arthur Morrisąs digital book is a 900+ page masterpiece. I donąt read many photographic books, but reading this one was addictive. Itąs chock full of incredible images, ideas and information about locations, composition and use of all types of gear for bird and wildlife photography. Even top photographers will learn tons from this book. Arthur is a master of bird photography and a great teacher who keeps no secrets. He loves photography and in ABP II shares all with the world."
Here is the CD cover-quote from Jim Brandenburg, one of my heroes: “Arthur’s bird photographs have a truly unequalled elegance. As artist, he shares a rare gift of quiet intimacy in his work, then as teacher, powerfully describes the steps of this most delicate ballet with his shy and elusive feathered partner.”

Hi Art, I received the CD for ABP II and all that I can say is that it is incredible. There is so much information in ABP II that it will take a while to digest it all. It's more than a book on making creative pictures of birds, it's a reference standard. Incredible! Thanks again for a great book; I've learned a lot already! Joe

Hi Art, I'm enjoying the pre-release "The Art of Bird Photography II" that I bought at NANPA. Thank you so much for putting it together. I also wanted to say that reading it on the computer line is much easier than I expected it to be. I normally prefer hardcopy books and magazines, but your PDF book is very readable. Thanks again, Brian

"The final version of ABP II is superb just like your other work; your depth of knowledge and unequalled artistic skill flies off on every page."
