Críticas:

One of the Birder’s Library Best Bird Books of 2014
One of the StarTribune/Lifestyle’s Best Birding Books of 2014

"Ms. De Roy has swum, walked and slept amid penguins wherever they can be found on the tenuous tonsure of land, ice and rock around the Southern ocean. The book presents surreal tableaux: Neon-orange necks of king penguins glow against a blubbery carpet of sleeping elephant seals. . . . This beautiful book can only fuel readers' passion to preserve these astonishing birds, and for that, the authors must be lauded." --Wall Street Journal

"Beautiful. . . . If you are into birds, you probably don't have a penguin book, so this will fill the bill. As it were. This is also one of those books that totally qualify as a great present to give someone you know who has an interest in birds generally, or penguins in particular. I should also mention that there are a couple of pages in the back on where to see penguins." --Greg Laden's Blog

"Yes, it's another penguin book. But there never seems to be enough for penguin aficionados! Still, Penguins: the Ultimate Guide by Tui De Roy, Mark Jones, and Julie Cornthwaite might just fulfill the promise of its subtitle. . . . Penguins: the Ultimate Guide is part coffee-table book, part informative essays, and part species profiles for each of the 18 species. Moreover, the 400+ photos are gorgeous . . . until further notice, this may be 'the ultimate guide' to penguins and their lives." --Birding Community E-Bulletin

"Of the many books on perennially popular penguins, this is far and away the best, by any standard. . . . An outstanding gem. Most highly recommended for all interested, whether the lay public or scientists, in natural history and Antarctic and sub-Antarctic places." --Henry T. Armistead, Library Journal starred review

" Penguins: The Ultimate Guide IS the ultimate guide to penguins. With more than 400 pictures detailing all 18 penguin species on Earth, this book will educate and delight you. While it is a bona fide bird book, Penguins: The Ultimate Guide is also a beautiful coffee table book that would make a great gift for any wildlife lover." --Gabriel Thoumi, MongaBay.com

"The three primary authors are noted wildlife photographers, and their expertise shines in beautiful pictures, many of them at close range, culled from 15 years of penguin encounters. . . . This is a fascinating guide that is suitable for most libraries." --Elaine Lindstrom, Booklist

"If you're tempted to wonder if the world really needs another book about penguins, don't. It does, especially when it comes from renowned photographer Tui De Roy and her collaborators Mark Jones and Julie Cornthwaite. . . . Stunning photos . . . insightful essays. . . . As advertised, it is truly the ultimate guide to the world's penguins."-- BirdWatching Magazine
