A personal story of living with a parent obsessed with a life consuming quest. ( )

A decent read, and I picked up a lot about birding and birds. But I can't say I'd like to meet either Dan or Richard Koeppel. They both strike me as aloof and self-absorbed, and mostly uninterested in other people. So why write this book so we can read about them? ( )

A lovely memoir about the relationship between a father and a son, this book is one of my favorites. You will not only learn more about bird watching than you thought possible, but you will want to hug your father and tell him you love him after reading this book. ( )

This is the first book I've ever read where it was crucial to read the pages of acknowledgements first! As an avid birder when I read the book, I had certain expectations. I expected mentions of other birders, and I expected to get clarification on who was the obsessive one? -- the father, or the son -- it is intentionally ambiguous. I know a couple of "listers" and have birded with them when I was a novice. They both valued another set of eyes and ears as long as one is not noisy, or awkward, or talkative, or impatient or wearing white (real birders don't wear white). Did that apply to Richard, too?

What I missed from TSEB was this perspective of the other birders around this obsessive compulsive dad.
Perhaps I've forgotten, but I thought that a few interviews with other listers, or others he birded with, might have given a fuller picture of the person he was writing about.

Writing this review a dozen years after reading the book, many details have faded. I do remember that as an anesthesiologist he never dealt with patients as people, and as a contract person he had no lingering responsibilities for the care of the patient once they woke up. No babies waiting for delivery, no cancers to monitor, no moods to deal with. The practice served his needs perfectly -- he could earn lots of money and only work when it was necessary. Since he seemed to lack both empathy and social skills, there are few professions that would allow him to succeed.

The extremes to which the father would go to add to his list were interesting and curious. He didn't seem to enjoy his quest. There was little "joy" or "fun" in the book. But, I'm forgiving. Making your first publication an autobiographical biography must be a real challenge. For the "History of Birding and Listing" material,I give him full marks. For the rest, a medium grade-- for failing to fully research his father's effects on others.

What a perfect cover. ( )

I could have done with a little less of the I-didn't-get-enough-attention-from-my-parents narratives, but all the ornithological, taxonomy, naturalist, and travel stuff was fantastic. Sure to be a big hit with any Big List or backyard birder. ( )
