Format: Paperback
This book is a MUST for every corn owner. It features EVERYTHING you will need to know about keeping cornsnakes, and is very interesting to read. It includes;
General Inofrmation (Heating, lighting, cageing requirements ect...)
Breeding (Hibernation, egg laying, incubating ect...)
Diseases & Disorders (Ticks, mites, Respiratory infections ect....)
Colour & Patern Variation (LOTS of colour photographs)
Each Chapter is very in depth and quite easy to understand. The book is 127 pages long, and includes lots of colour photos of cornsnakes, and photos about the above topics. This book is written by two of the biggest Cornsnake breeders in the USA, so they know what they are talking about and the information written in the bok is very useful, and makes sense.
I have read this book lots of times and found new things out each time i have read it, and am still finding new things out not and i have had my cornsnake for around 3 years.
In my opinion this book is A MUST HAVE for every cornsnake keeper, wether they be begginers, or experianced keepers, this book has helped me and a lot of other cornsnake owners

After looking at hundreds of web sites, trying to find care sheets on corn snkes with little success, I came across this book. This book did what many others on the subject do not. Instead of just touching on certain subjects, it goes into each one in depth, giving clear and concise information. With a wide range of topics, including housing, feeding and breeding, plus a comprehensive list of the most common health problems, this book is perfect for the first time corn snake owner.

Corn Snakes the Comprehensive Owners Guide is exactly what it said. It was full of usefull information for me as a beginner. Covering all subjects from, where to get your snake, how to choose a healthy specimen, Basic housing requirements, Feeding, breeding, diseases, and handling techniques. which was fine for me. Then it covered subjects like the history of Morphing the basic snake colours and patterns. the law and owning snakes.I think this is predominantly the American Law, as it mentions feeding live pinkies to troublesome feeders. I understood that we could not feed live animals to our pets. For anyone who is thinking about buying a corn snake this is the book for you.

I am a beginner herper and this book has helped me immensely with my first corn snake. Of course I already knew most of the husbandry techniques before I purchased the book (and the snake for that matter) but htis book helped to refine them.
One thing it doesn't go into though is general behaviour and I have had to ask around the internet to recieve answers.
If you're interested in keeping corn snakes or have one or two already then this book is a must-have.

I have never been able to find a book specifically about cornsnakes that i was truely impressed with until this one. The authors have taken an amazing amount of time and effort to make this book the best source of information for beginners and experts alike, whether you want to just keep one as a pet, or become a big time breeder. Over all, a fantastic book!

Format: Paperback
This book contains everything anyone who owns a corn snake could possible need to know about these wonderful snakes. It really is a must have for people who owns corns, I have not read a book on corn snakes as helpful as this. It contains information on the conditions you must keep your snake in, feeding tips - how much a corn should eat and many solutions for problem feeders, common illnesses and parasites and ways to treat them at home, all colour morphs with full colour pictures of them and how the morphs were attained, the background of the corn snake and much more. The reason I knocked a star off was because of its lack of readability for younger people and beginners. I thought it was a little heavy for beginners with too much information to digest at once. I suggest getting a more basic book before getting a corn snake then buying this book once you have had your corn for a little while. The language used would be too complex for younger people so I don't recommend it for children. But for people who own a corn snake already definitely buy now if you don't already have it, no corn owner is complete without this book!

This book is extreamly informative with plenty of deatale from every aspect of owning a corn snake from chosing what type and coulor morph to but to housing requirments through to breeding and how to minipulate the different morphs available. it also gives good history of the corn and how to tell if anything is wrong and the possible diagnosis of an ilness and what to do about it. Highly recomended and can't wait for vilume 2 later this year or early next year.

There is a lot of detail and many many pages on the different morphs of corn snake, how to breed them and how to look after hatchlings. I'd go as far as to say this book is 100% aimed at breeders of corn snakes and NOT for people like myself who simply want to own one or maybe a few more corn snakes and want to know how best to look after them day to day. There is no information on handling, daily routines, feeding schedules are only mentioned once briefly and there is no mention of the famous "Munson feeding plan" which details how to feed corns throughout their life. In fact, even when mentioning feeding it is in reference to ensuring corns get to a good weight for breeding. It tells me to change the water a minimum of every 3 days twice in the book seemingly randomly and as an afterthought.

So I disagree with the books title. It is not an owners guide it is for breeders and breeders only.
