This is a wonder book and I was so pleased to get a copy even at the inflated out of print second user price. I met the author a month or so ago and lo and behold he is not a biologist but a very capable and well qualified mechanical engineer. He told me that the research took him 8 years but he had set his sights on writing a book that would help people to look after their tortoises in a good manner and he managed to get it published by the American firm with an agreement that it would be available in many different languages and get the widest possible circulation. He made no personal money from its publication and takes no royalties. I am sure it is the best book going on the tortoise and Brian will have helped these curious creatures in a magnificent way.

This book is great, because it has specialised in caring for one type of tortoise in the UK, so there are no irrelevancies about Turtles and America. Excellent.

I have learned very much about behaviour between males and females tortoises, but i have been able to see that one point is not right(referring to males and females breeding). I miss coments about Spanish tortoises.But in general is the best book i have ever read about tortoises.

Great book and it arrived. Covers the subject well, but I'm still lost as to what to feed them as this is possibly it's weakest point.

In very good condition. I already had this book, but lent it to someone and never got it back. Happy to replace it for 1p and p&p

A great book which gave us good tips about housing our tortoises and helping them to breed.
Worth shelling out for if you are a tortoise enthusiast.
