Natl Geo's "Complete Birds of NA"

What's the buzz on this book, anybody know? I just got a mailer from NG about its availability, which also says it's only available (for now, anyway) via mail order. 950 species covered in 704 pages, hardbound, intended as a companion reference to the field guide. Edited by Jonathan Alderfer, it comes in two different editions, one with a padded cover ("deluxe") that costs $15 more than the "regular exclusive edition", which is going for $40. Would love to know if anyone's bought this yet or heard anything about how good it is.
