This book may be a mine of information, but it is very hard to read due to overuse and wrong use of bullet points, which unnecessarily break up sentences and distract the eye - in places it looks like someone's lecture notes. It could also do with more illustrative pictures and photographs, and clearer headings. The author also explains why he wants to use the word dis-ease rather than disease, but the use of dis-ease makes the text look old-fashioned.
There are also some glaring omissions - being the owner of an elderly pony I was interested in reading about Cushings, but there was practically nothing about it in the book which I found surprising.
So for me as an "average" horse owner, I'm disappointed in this book and am now looking for another equine veterinary book to supplement this one, something I thought I wouldn't have to do because I was expecting this one to be my "bible".
