This is a very good breed guide for people who want their pointers to be working dogs, or who want to understand the work that their dog was designed to do. The book covers a lot of ground, from choosing a puppy, and general care, to gundog training. Owners interested in shooting, falconry, field trials, and showing their German Shorthaired Pointer are likely to enjoy the book. It's not fully comprehensive, and some aspects of care and training receive better coverage than others, but experienced owners are likely to find it a source of useful tips. It is also very well illustrated, with numerous photographs.
