*Training issues and strategies were all but ignored.
*Dietary breed specific info was generic at best and IMHO potentially harmful.
*The whelping and puppy selection was just repeated info you find in any dog book.
I found more info by visiting the websites of Akita clubs. Friends of akitas, for example, is a great online community out of the UK, with in depth treasure of easy to access, online, free breed specific information.
This is a decent starting point about dogs in general, but if you are seriously looking for accurate, in-depthl information on Akitas invest in Barbara Bouyet's book "Akita- Tresure of Japan V2". It's worth the money.
