1.0 out of 5 stars Inaccurate
Contains a lot of inaccurate information especially around diet. Also heavy on the Turtle care which has no relevance to me. Disappointing book from the Dummies range.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Indeed, 4 July 2009
By 
Oliver "Ollie" (Birmingham, England.) - See all my reviews
I honestly couldn't ask for much more in a single book about tortoise keeping, Comletely Brilliant for Tortoise Owners or Tortoise owners to be, only downside is that all the websites and phone numbers are from america, better for novice tortoise or turtle owners, but get it on here, i paid 15.99 for mine!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Beginners Book..., 19 Feb 2011
By 
Miss J. M. Aje (Cornwall, U.K) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This is a very good book for beginners. Gives overviews of the differing species of tortoise & turtles and general information on what you will need to provide for your new pet. A must read for all those trying to decide whether or not they should get a tortoise or turtle. However, once you have decided to purchase a tortoise or turtle I would highly recommend you do some further research into which ever species you go for.

If you do decide to take on a tortoise or turtle please please please make sure it is captive bred and NOT wild caught & if you buy from a pet shop double check ALL the care & housing advice you are given by the shop!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful book and great advice!, 11 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a really good to use and have when thinking about keeping turtles or tortoises!
I am a beginner in this area of pets and wanted a book which would point me in the right direction of species, care and housing and this book did not let me down!
It contains pretty much everything you need to know as well as information about different species, their origin, behaviour, which foods are and arent suitable as well as helping you to figure out which tortoise or turtle is the right one for you. I feel entirely confident after reading it and it has helped me to gain knowledge through the writers own experiences.
The way the book is written provides understanding of different aspects or categories of tortoise/turtle care and it is as if the person is having a conversation with you. Easy to read with clear and precise sections.
I would advice this book to anyone who isnt too sure about keeping chelonians or for those who are beginners.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
my son has wanted a tortoise for quite a while so i bought him this book to learn about them before he goes ahead and gets one.He has read the book and learned a lot about them. Must say he hasn't got one yet though. Maybe reading about one was enough
