A rather slight, if endearingly eccentric book which sometimes seems to say more about the love of dogs than books. Rather USA centred, as you might expect, with the sections on further reading and supplies having only limited usefulness on this side of the pond. The section on repairs is rendered close to useless by the want of a few simple diagrams, but I, a part-time professional bookseller, still found one or two worthwhile tips, particularly. . . but no, you'll have to read it. Suffice it to say that I may have turned a £60 book into a £125 one, if it works!

I bought this book for my boyfriend who is a book enthusiast to say the least! It was a good quirky gift and he really liked the novelty aspect of it. He had been looking for information on caring for books but had been unsuccessful so he was delighted with the book. He said that it was an interesting book to read too with lots of anecdotes which he liked. He has actually used a good few tips from it all of which have worked. I would recommend it to anyone who just can't think of something new to buy for that 'book-lover' in their lives!

Not a bad book on book restoration but suffers from the absence of any illustrations. There are several areas were it tries to describe a book problem and repair were the use of a good illustration would have help and in some cases was necessary. Trying to describe to construction of a book without illustration seemed to me total madness, which spoiled the aim of the book. The author is the owner of a bookshop specializing in dogs and the constant reference to dogs in a book on book restoration seemed to be unnecessary.
