This is a good book if you have never owned rabbits and this will be one of a few a books that you plan on reading, because despite the authors experience and education on the subjects in the book he seems as if he is rushing it just a little, granted it is old (last pub date was 1988), and also as if he is preaching his way rather than letting you develop experience through guidance through learning your own way, there are ways to screw up and there are those who get it no matter what. I highly suggest that you do your research before you consider owning rabbits, I disagree with the authors view on raising rabbits primarily for meat, with my animals I raise primarily for the coats and angora wool which I tan the hides and spin the wool) and sell them locally, meat is mearly a by product for me and believe me it can really help on your grocery bill. Just do yourself and all the rest of us who are in this business a favor, educate yourself first before you even buy a rabbit.

I got this book from our local library when I first started with rabbits. While it is filled with tons of very very valuable information, I would strongly advise anyone wanting rabbits to get the NEW version of this book "Storye's Guide to Raising Rabbits".

My husband and I are planning to raise/breed meat rabbits for our family to eat and didn't know where to start. This book is very simple and detailed in how to do things, how to do it right, and how to do it efficiently (for your time and money).
It's a great starting out point if you know next-to-nothing about rabbit raising like we do. It is missing some things that I'm interested in, like free-range/natural feeding, and there are some things I don't agree with, like forced breeding, but overall this is a very useful book. After reading it I feel confident enough to go and buy the supplies and start raising rabbits immediately.
I will be moving to his updated version in Storey's Guide to Raising Rabbits, by the same author, Bob Bennett.

this is a great book but it was revised in 1988. That is hardly the modern way. Actually, most things don't change but I found a few things that are not true (like what kind of hay to feed). Any way, consider all your possibilities before investing in this book.

As a small homstead rabbit rasier, I was disappointed in buying this book. It seemed to be only for the commerical and show rabbit rasiers.
