Not a very good book
on 30 December 2009
This is quite a thick book ... that somehow manages to say very little.
I first read this book from start to finish and then went back to dip into it looking for the info that I wanted. Sadly, too often, the most basic info was missing.
This is NOT a beginners guide to reptiles etc as the reader will be left none the wiser. If you are looking at getting a first exotic pet then I would suggest looking at a few caresheets on the Internet (I say 'a few' as opinions do vary widely in relation to reptile keeping).
And get a book specific to the animal that you intend to keep (I have several).
If you are an experienced keeper, it is unlikely you will be looking at a book with 'dummies' in the title. However, if you are, dont buy this book as it contains very little in the way of useful info IMHO.
