I purchased this book looking for information on the temperment, history, and different varieties of Burmese cats. That said, as it is in a "breed series", I expected some general cat information, but hoped for more "meat" about the Burmese breed specifically.

The good points:
- It does cover information about the breed's history and origins.
- It has 27 pages of material about the breed (mostly history).
- It has good pictures of various burmese colors.
- It has some useful general information on disease identification
- All of the photographs are in color and are of good quality. There are MANY photos throughout the book.

The bad:
- It ONLY has 27 pages about the burmese and some of that is "cut and paste" style general cat-fancy history.
- It mainly focuses on the British style burmese and the standard given is the british standard. It only mentions the american style burmese a few times and those are in conjunction with the "contemporary" burmese.
- Although it mentions the "contemporary" and "traditional" american styles and the british style, I can only find one picture of a contemporary.
- It does not go into detail (with photographs) about what makes each of the styles different.

So, in summary... If you really want just pictures of Burmese with general cat information, this would be a good book for you. Also, if you just want to see many pictures of Burmese (99% British style) then this would be a good resource.
If you want specific information on Burmese temperment, genetics, etc...Look elsewhere.

This book is very well written. It explains the history and traits of Burmese cats. Then has many pages devoted to cat care. It is quite informative, and had information I have not seen in other books about cat health and behavior. Excellent.
