    This book was purchased to find out more on Chi's I am in the process of purchasing a female to potentially show and breed. General info was good but was disappointed that there was not much info on breeding and colour with a little on genetics and pedigree info etc.
    Overall good book if you have no prior research onboard and I think it is good to have on your shelf as a general reference.

    I really liked this book however it was a bit thin on what to expect. Covers things in a glossed over fashion, nothing too in depth. But good.

    I am very pleased with this little book. It is an easy read with lots of good information. I read it from cover to cover in less than an hour. Love the pictures. I am about to pick up my new pup and there was lots of good advice between the covers.

    I really enjoyed this book because it really focuses on the breed. Other books I got were too general. I finished this one in 2-3 days because it was right on target. Pictures are varied and appropriate. I would definitely recommend this book.
