Easy to follow, and very good value for the amount of information it contains. This is an excellent guide for novices who are interested in all the tortoise family. They should read it before getting their first specimen, or buying new ones - there is some very useful advice on the relative difficulty of different species. Liz Palika is a well-known US specialist in reptiles, and the book is geared to US readers, but it is packed with so much information that we could forgive her for being American.
