On page 13 the Curly is described as a long lived, active dog. Compared to other large dog breeds, the Curly might better be described as a high-energy, short-lived dog. Eight to twelve years, and often less than eight, is not so long lived in my opinion.
In the section "The Curly in Australia and New Zealand", when referring to the Murray River Curly, the author confuses Australia and New Zealand (page 15). This Australasian reader then became suspicious of the finer detail in the remainder of the book.
Overall the book comes across like a formula book which gets adapted by different authors for different breeds, or perhaps an adaptation of a book about a different breed.
The homeopathic remedies section (pages 134-136) does not lend the Health Care chapter much credibility.
The photographs are good, especially of this predominantly black creature whose coat color makes photography a challenge under many lighting conditions.
