I think Craig Robson had to stop somewhere, as SE Asia stretches from eastern India to Papua and north to the Philippines. I don't think I would like to lug around a field guide that covers the whole of the region. It would be nice to have one in the book case though. It would certainly make a lot more room in it.

re Robson - Birds of South East Asia - I bought this book in the UK from Amazon for £11.39 in Jan 2011 but it was published by New Holland and has a yellow cover. Looking inside the cover I see it is the 2007 edition. The lack of maps is an irritant but the distribution information is all there in the text.

Note that if you are going to Malaysia, as we were, this book does not cover Sabah!

It would certainly be worth checking that whichever publisher / retailer you by it from that you get the latest (2009) edition.
