Comment: A book which is in good overall condition. This means that it will be largely free of page markings, the spine will still be in solid, tight condition and there will be no pages which are missing from the book. The pages may have slightly turned corners but overall the book should be clean to touch and enjoyable to read.

This book is by far the best I have seen for beginners. It has all the information you could ever need on the subject of your Corn snakes. This book really gave me a lot of help and useful advise when I bought my first Corn snake. Since then, I have developed a very large interest in all snakes. Overall, a great book and a valuable buy for any Corn snake keeper. Neil Bowick

Although this book might be good for basic knowledge, it has only a very vague coverage of Corn Snake care. This book would be helpful for a person who is interested in a reptile pet as a guide to the basic needs of a Corn Snake to help them decide if a Corn is the right pet for them. Otherwize, it is largely unhelpfull and possibly the least well-informed Corn Care book. Anyone who is intent on buying a Corn, or who already has one would be better off looking at other, more detailed books such as The Corn Snake Manual.

1.0 out of 5 stars One to avoid; there are better guides out there 20 July 2001
By Jonathan Crowe - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is easily the least-informed and the worst-written of the corn snake manuals in print today. Those needing a book on keeping corn snakes in captivity would be better off buying one of the following: Corn Snakes, by R. D. Bartlett and Patricia Bartlett; Corn Snakes and Other Rat Snakes, also by Bartlett and Bartlett; and especially The Corn Snake Manual, by Bill and Kathy Love. The first of these is excellent for beginners, the last, by the Loves, is the definitive book on the species. Better yet, buy all three of them, learn, and enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great source for beginners with snakes 8 Oct. 1997
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I read this book when I first decided to buy a corn
snake. This book gave me a good impression of how
to care for my corn snake. As a beginner with snakes, it served
as adequate background information. However,if
you are seriously considering buying and
caring for a corn snake, it would behoove you to
consult another source as well. Do not use this book
as the bible on how to care for your snake. Since reading
this book, I have discovered many discrepancies in the text. The book is not necessarily wrong, but it suggests that there
are certain ways to care for your snake that are
preferable,whereas in reality, there are many other ways, some
of which are preferable over the ways the book suggests.
However, this book is a very interesting source for
background information on corn and red rat snakes.
