His numerous books have a million copies worldwide. He served as president of the South African Ornithological Society and of BirdLife South Africa, and was a recipient of the SAOS Gill Memorial Award and the Zoological Society's Stevenson-Hamilton Award.

This is an excellent guide for identifying the birds of Southern Africa, but it is too heavy for carrying around as a field guide. Work with a human guide to ID the bird, then come back to camp to read about the bird. Beware! After using it for only four days in Kruger Park, the cover detached, the binding broke, and pages started falling out. It is not as well constructed a book as Peterson's, Sibley's or Kaufman's guides for the birds in the States.
