    guns of glory []  2020-5-21 22:34
    [email protected]

    Just played Guns of Glory on a phone application via mistplay reviews. Played this one with amazing interest as on the mobile you got the impression of controlling your characters on the ground level, helping catch pick pockets etc etc. Like all mobile ads this was misleading. Don't obtain me wrong the android game itself was addictive and you can spend hours playing (If you play via mistplay you can earn a fair few Amazon vouchers), but yeah false advertising? Really? Unfortunately this is a huge pitfall a lot of android games like these fall into. For example you can expect a nice create your kitchen safe android game but instead you obtain something quite various (garden scapes see add for application and play game)

    Birds of Ethiopia and Eritrea []  2020-7-21 19:52

    Basics: 2009, hardcover, 463 pages, 29 of 32 endemics with color photos, 872 species with a breeding/status atlas map, text of distribution and habitat, a lot of listsThis is a thorough reference book to the distribution and status of all species found in both Ethiopia and Eritrea. The heart of the book is its 872 atlas style maps. Using a grid of 528 squares over the region, the presence of each bird in a square is represented by four distinct symbols. These represent either a confirmed sighting/specimen, an uncertain record, confirmed breeding, or uncertain e paragraph accompanying each map consists of the bird's status in the country, migration pattern, distribution notes, breeding behavior and dates, and favored sites. This info is about one paragraph in length.Other than a dozen or so black-and-white images of different habitats, the only other images in this book are 29 excellent, nice-sized color images. These represent all but 3 of the region's 32 endemic birds. Not illustrated are the Red-billed Pytilia, the uncertain Ethiopian Cliff Swallow, and the never seen Nechisar Nightjar (known from only a single wing).For the data oriented birder, this book a amazing of extra information. The 70 pages at the beginning cover a wide range of info from ornithological history to topography and geology to vegetation to breeding seasons. There are also 14 amazing quality color maps of the region showing a dozens of geologic, climate, and vegetative e latest 78 pages of the book a lot of lists that cover hybrids, endemics, hypotheticals, necessary bird areas, bird ringing/banding, a gazetteer, and is book will appeal to the more ardent ornithologist, the traveling birder, and the Abyssian enthusiast; however, its emphasis on maps and data with few images and no identification may be a small dry for a lot of other birders.I've listed several similar books below...1) A Tutorial to Endemic Birds of Ethiopia and Eritrea by Pol2) Ethiopia's endemic birds by Urban3) Birds of the Horn of Africa by Redman4) A Checklist of the Birds of Ethiopia by Urban5) Ethiopia: In Find of Endemic Birds by Francis6) Birds of Somalia by Ash7) The Birds of East Africa by Stevenson8) Birds of Kenya and Northern Tanzania by Zimmerman9) A Bird Atlas of Kenya by Lewis(written by Soleglad at Avian Review or Avian Books, May 2009)

    Birds of the Horn of Africa: Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Somalia, and Socotra (Princeton Field Guides) []  2020-1-25 17:24

    I was really excited to this book and the color plates are terrific. However, the range maps are so min that they're a joke. They are beautiful well impossible to read, even with a magnifying glass. I realize that the only alternative is to have the range maps on a separate page, but that would be preferable to not being able to read them

    Birds of the Horn of Africa: Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Somalia, and Socotra (Princeton Field Guides (51)) []  2020-4-19 18:51

    I've been using this book while working and traveling in the Horn of Africa. It has been very useful ... I really like the layout--the pictures are perfect representations of the species (and as one reviewer noted, subspecies). The flight profiles and range maps have been key to my identifying some birds--the hardest birds to identify I search are the plain ones and this book does a very amazing job of describing and showing the subtle variations needed for positive identification. My copy is now dog-eared, coffee-stained, and marked up ... After 3 months, the binding is coming loose somewhat but the pages are still stitched in beautiful well. It's been stuffed in backpacks, thrown on hot dashes, tossed around in a dive bag on the beach--so it's holding up very well all things considered!If you are coming this method and you like birds, it's the book for you! Highly recommend.

    This is another perfect bird tutorial by the authors. On a latest trip to Ethiopia, I found this book to be an indispensable companion. The drawings are outstanding as is the text on each bird. The range maps and in particular the elevation tutorials were very helpful in this geographically variable country. The info of this tutorial are well covered in previous reviews and this book would be a welcome addition to the library of those who love to travel in Africa. I left this tutorial with our local semi-bird tutorial to encourage his growth in birding. He was both emotional and appreciative to keep this book. I bought a fresh one on my arrival home.

    Birds of the Horn of Africa: Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Somalia, and Socotra (Princeton Field Guides) []  2020-1-25 17:24

    Basics: 2009, softcover, 496pp, field/identification guide, 213 color plates of all 1,000+ species in the region; range mapsThis is another top quality book produced by the authors for the eastern region of Africa. Upon opening this book, you'll recognize a lot of of the plates from their earlier work, "Field Tutorial to the Birds of East Africa" (see #6 below). You'll also see a lot of fresh plates along with modifications of prior e artistry is very good, easily making this book equal to or better than any other field tutorial on African birds. The 213 color plates illustrate all 1,000+ species found in the four "Horn" countries of Eritrea, Ethiopia, Djibouti and Somalia (plus the island of Socotra, which belongs to Yemen). Nearly every bird is shown with multiple (2-5) drawings that display perfect detail. The Yellow Wagtail has 13 various illustrations that compare the wide variation of this species. The plates do a amazing job at showing variations between genders, ages, and subspecies. I especially appreciated the additional effort that went into separating out the a lot of subspecies. Extra focus seems to have been given to in-flight poses for a lot of of the non-passerines.A brief paragraph is given for each bird across from its illustration. Although the amount of text may seem light, the info is very informative, to the point, and precise. About 80% of the info is on identification. A couple more lines are dedicated to habitat, distribution notes, and voice. You may wish to take note of the font size, which is little and thin; consequently, you might wish to have your reading glasses e range maps - one for each bird - shows the resident, breeding, and non-breeding ranges in three various colors. These maps reflect the bird's range within only the four countries and artificially stop at the political borders. The maps present very amazing detail; however, this is sometimes difficult to create out due to the shaded highland regions in the background and to the rather faint gray boundaries that separate the countries. Ranges of birds with a very restricted distribution (e.g., Sidamo Lark, Ash's Lark, Djibouti Francolin, Black-backed Cisticola) can be difficult to see with just a little dot representing the range. Inserting an arrow would have been helpful. Making a more prominent note of the 70+ endemics would also have been appreciated, vs simply burying the word "endemic" within the case you're wondering if you would need this book over the authors' prior book for East Africa, the respond is "Yes, if you are visiting any of these four countries." Twenty percent of the birds found in the Horn are not in the other book. Also, when there is overlap of the species between the two regions, the authors' have modified the plates to reflect the plumages of the local is is a superb tutorial that will be essential for birding in these countries. Being the only complete book for this region makes it even more indispensible.1) Birds of Ethiopia and Eritrea by Atkins/Ash2) Ethiopia's Endemic Birds by Urban3) A Tutorial to Endemic Birds of Ethiopia and Eritrea by Pol4) Ethiopia: In Find of Endemic Birds by Francis5) Birds of Somalia by Ash6) Field Tutorial to the Birds of East Africa by Stevenson7) Birds of Africa South of the Sahara by Sinclair/Ryan8) Birds of Kenya and Northern Tanzania by Zimmerman9) A Checklist of the Birds of Ethiopia by Urban(written by Soleglad at Avian Review or Avian Books, May 2009)

    While heavy, it is comprehensive and simple to use. Perfect index and plates. Fellow birders carried smaller Birds of Eastern Africa and kept asking to see my Redman guide. Local tutorials also used Birds of the Horn...I recommend Redman's book strongly.

    I used this book when I studied tropical ecology in Ethiopia earlier this year. I won't repeat what others have said, but this is a very amazing field guide. One major flaw is that some species are given full species status or various names when that is not how they are recognized in current globe checklists. That makes it difficult for those that use eBird or other listing databases.

    Being stationed in Djibouti I was amazed of all the birds that flew through the airfield. I tried to look them up but to no avail, I couldn't search a book that would help. Latest week Mat Klope came by to perform a wildlife survey of the birds and animals in Djibouti and in his hand was this book. I was amazed that someone even took the time to log the regions where the birds live. I've worked in the Aviation industry since high school and repaired countless aircraft after a "bird strike."

    Like an idiot, I didn't a bird book BEFORE my trip to Ethiopia. Upon returning home I bought this book and I'm successfully using it to ID the birds I saw on my trip, based on my photographs and notes. A very user friendly layout with intuitively displayed range information.

I was amazed that someone even took the time to log the regions where the birds live. I've worked in the Aviation industry since high school and repaired countless aircraft after a "bird strike." Learning more about the birds that live in the regions where I work

    Birds of the Horn of Africa: Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Somalia, and Socotra - Revised and Expanded Edition (Princeton Field Guides) []  2020-6-28 18:56

    I was really excited to this book and the color plates are terrific. However, the range maps are so min that they're a joke. They are beautiful well impossible to read, even with a magnifying glass. I realize that the only alternative is to have the range maps on a separate page, but that would be preferable to not being able to read them

    Like an idiot, I didn't a bird book BEFORE my trip to Ethiopia. Upon returning home I bought this book and I'm successfully using it to ID the birds I saw on my trip, based on my photographs and notes. A very user friendly layout with intuitively displayed range information.

    Eccentric Graces: Eritrea and Ethiopia Through the Eyes of a Traveler []  2020-6-23 19:21

    Tutorials on Eritrea and Ethiopia are not abundant but the two countries would be better of with NO tutorials at all in case the only alternative would be the hair-raising gibberish presented under this pretentious title.Everything this woman "knows" is based on the little bibliography she managed to consult and a number of utterly superficial conversations with the occasional passer-by. Beyond that, there is absolutely nothing eccentric and graceful about this book which would probably have looked exactly the same in case she would have travelled Ghana or Egypt or China or what this book in case you need warning about bringing toilet paper when visiting public toilets or in case you search a kid leaving a turt on a busseat interesting reading ...Otherwise: Forget about this irritating rubbish and Obtain Philip Braggs's perfect "Guide to Ethiopia" for practical info and e.g. Kevin Rushby's highly acclaimed "Eating the flowers of paradise" ... and DO go and vitit Ethiopia !

    Eccentric Graces: Eritrea and Ethiopia Through the Eyes of a Traveler []  2020-6-23 19:21

    There are far better books that can give you a perspective of these two countries. This author's work is nothing but an attempt propagating a prejudiced, if not condescending, view of Ethiopia. I search her outlook insulting and patronising to Ethiopians and Eritreans alike. It is like a not good attempt of a 90's travelogue Evelyn Waugh's style, as it is steeped in colonial hypocrisy and unabashedly patronising globe view. A waste of my time, glad I didn't it, as I got it from a library.

    This book was disappointing. Very very few pictures, outdated visa requirements about yellow fever vaccinations (which I've read elsewhere have never been a requirement), not much primary travel info (like country weather, dress, currency) which is usually covered well in Lonely Planet books, like LP China, for example. The writers are clearly European, but their powerful style leaves me wondering what nuances I may not be picking up on as an American. These omissions create me less confident about the other facts and recommendations given in the book. None of the writers are female, which also makes me wonder if the locations they felt safe would be comfortable to a female traveler. All in all, this book was not as thorough and well researched as other Lonely Planet books I have read and used.

    I've been reading Kaplan for years. He has a special method of exploring an problem or region of the globe and bringing it home for the reader in a method that balances history, politics, and culture with a touch of the exotic. Kaplan also has a hold grasp of the globe and where it is going. Reading Kaplan is always interesting, provocative, and thought-provoking. I would recommend any book he's written as a amazing read.I must confess my ignorance about Ethiopia. I grew up with the commercials for starving kids and famine relief and Live Aid, but I never actually knew much about it. I just figured it was another group of hungry people who were doomed by poor weather and poor geography. I never much attention to the problems of that part of the world, so I was shocked to learn just how much I had missed in my own lifetime in Ethiopia. Kaplan does a terrific job of explaining the background and bringing the problems to vivid life. This book is somewhat dated, but it still serves as a amazing description of what was event in the region in the 1980s and 1990s and it helps shed light on the problems facing the region today.

    Kaplan has amazing books because he is on the ground, describing what he sees. This one would have been better if I would have read it years ago. Still, it is a amazing history of the region. You can tell it was one of the first books that he wrote. Sometimes you lose track of the people he is writing about. But overall, it is a amazing read, especially if you like his other books.

Obviously, he did not wish to do much research into the zone as the same handful of sources are referred to. It is a shame that such short shrift is given to this region as it is one continuously neglected by the famous media.

I have worked this theater for 5 years now and he does not write one thing which I can say is inaccurate. His insights provide explanation to what may seem to the uninitiated as chaos. Thanks.

I found this book to be an extremely well-written and enlightening, if at times somewhat chaotic, acc of the complicated situation on the horn of Africa around the time of the mid-1980s. Its focus is on the underreported factors that contributed to the famine that ravaged the region, namely that regional battles and corrupt leaders were far more responsible for the mass starvation and suffering than simply the drought itself. A compelling if depressing read that sheds light on protracted, devastating happenings that are largely unknown to most of the world.

    I just went to Djibouti for a 10 day visit and this is one of the only English speaking guidebooks available (used). Luckily, it's very well written and the descriptions are still spot on. Maybe it's because very small changes in Djibouti given its geological history, but the author's recommendations (restaurants and tourist attractions) are still accurate. I've used a lot of lonely planet tutorials and this is by far the most readable and full of interesting details. Highly recommended!

    I live in Norway, and Africa's Horn is far from my daily life. I have travelled several times to Eritrea though, and have been searching for tutorial books from the country. When I went to Eritrea latest fall it was with amazing pleasure I bought the LP book by Frances Linzee Gordon, Ethiopia, Eritrea & e book is one of the best LP books I've read. The writing is clearly, and it gives us amazing insight in history, facts, geography, and so on. I have read parts of the book about all three countries, but the Eritrean part is the only one I have actuallu used when e books has some very amazing pictures and maps, and give alot of up to date information. My favorite part is the part about Asmara's architecture, "Asmara, or Piccola Roma, soon came to epitomise the fresh philosophy: it was not just beautiful, but was well planned, well built and, above all, functiomal. The book is a amazing tutorial to use when you plan your travel ahead, and is even better when you actually are there and need or wish information.An additional benefit of the book is the little notes you search alot of, giving interesting information. Reading these notes makes your travel alot more special.When I travel I use my guidebooks as kind of diaries. I write down restaurants I visit, hotel I stay at, interesting locations I see and so on. And this book is filled with my writings almost on all pages. Gordon has seen it all, and gives very useful info about a very interesting, though small known itt Arnhild Lindland

    Frances Linzee Gordon's tutorial to Ethiopia, Eritrea and Djibouti is not only clearly the best of the available tutorial books for these countries, but is also a true pleasure to read. I have used it twice this year while filming tv documentaries in Ethiopia for National Geographic Tv and it has created both trips easier, more interesting and more enjoyable than they would otherwise have been. The practical info is comprehensive and accessible and the historical and geographical info is elegantly written and more readable than is often the case in tutorial books. But what makes this guidebook stand out is the infectious passion and enthusiasm for the countries which it displays. The private reflections and the incidental info (particularly in the boxed text) give the guidebook a texture which really helps to create the country come alive. I would higly reccomend it to anyone making a trip to Ethiopia.

    It is hard to give this guidebook the rating it deserves, since I gave five stars to a lot of other Lonely Planet guidebooks already. This one, among them all, is perhaps the best one I have used. It provides amazing info for the traveler, with plenty of tips, and I have not found one single error or flaw. Meanwhile, all the info and tip are filled with a amazing sense of humour, and marvelous writing style, which must come from the author herself. Deep knowledge on the region also transpires from the book, which provides extremely thrilling and interesting insights into the region's history and culture. All in all, the author did a amazing unparalleled job. Also in consideration of her captivating look in the photograph, I want I could meet her and personally congratulate her. Frances, even though I don't know you, well done ! I wonder if we might have a Lonely Planet tutorial on Somalia come out soon, perhaps written by the same author.

    Lonely Planet Ethiopia & Eritrea (Country Travel Guide) []  2020-7-9 18:58

    This book was disappointing. Very very few pictures, outdated visa requirements about yellow fever vaccinations (which I've read elsewhere have never been a requirement), not much primary travel info (like country weather, dress, currency) which is usually covered well in Lonely Planet books, like LP China, for example. The writers are clearly European, but their powerful style leaves me wondering what nuances I may not be picking up on as an American. These omissions create me less confident about the other facts and recommendations given in the book. None of the writers are female, which also makes me wonder if the locations they felt safe would be comfortable to a female traveler. All in all, this book was not as thorough and well researched as other Lonely Planet books I have read and used.

    Surrender or Starve: Travels in Ethiopia, Sudan, Somalia, and Eritrea by Kaplan, Robert D. [Vintage, 2003] (Paperback) [Paperback] []  2020-1-9 19:21

    I always have fun reading Robert Kaplan, so the book is a amazing tour of Africa. Even though the material is now somewhat dated, I am sure that the political and social contexts have not changed all that much in the intervening years. I recommend this like all Mr. Kaplan's other works highly.

    Insightful and simple to read analysis of the 70s and 80s Horn of Africa. And the political side of the 1980s famine. As always a amazing book from the Author.

    Surrender or Starve: Travels in Ethiopia, Sudan, Somalia, and Eritrea by Kaplan, Robert D. [Vintage, 2003] (Paperback) [Paperback] []  2020-1-9 19:21

    I've been reading Kaplan for years. He has a special method of exploring an problem or region of the globe and bringing it home for the reader in a method that balances history, politics, and culture with a touch of the exotic. Kaplan also has a hold grasp of the globe and where it is going. Reading Kaplan is always interesting, provocative, and thought-provoking. I would recommend any book he's written as a amazing read.I must confess my ignorance about Ethiopia. I grew up with the commercials for starving kids and famine relief and Live Aid, but I never actually knew much about it. I just figured it was another group of hungry people who were doomed by poor weather and poor geography. I never much attention to the problems of that part of the world, so I was shocked to learn just how much I had missed in my own lifetime in Ethiopia. Kaplan does a terrific job of explaining the background and bringing the problems to vivid life. This book is somewhat dated, but it still serves as a amazing description of what was event in the region in the 1980s and 1990s and it helps shed light on the problems facing the region today.

    Kaplan has amazing books because he is on the ground, describing what he sees. This one would have been better if I would have read it years ago. Still, it is a amazing history of the region. You can tell it was one of the first books that he wrote. Sometimes you lose track of the people he is writing about. But overall, it is a amazing read, especially if you like his other books.

    I was not particularly impressed with this book. Kaplan tend to repeat the same thoughts (and phrases) in each chapter. Obviously, he did not wish to do much research into the zone as the same handful of sources are referred to. It is a shame that such short shrift is given to this region as it is one continuously neglected by the famous media.

    This is essential reading for any professional soldier or diplomat conducting business in east Africa. Kaplan neatly lays out the narrative as is his style. His commentary is on target. I have worked this theater for 5 years now and he does not write one thing which I can say is inaccurate. His insights provide explanation to what may seem to the uninitiated as chaos. Thanks.
