Format: Hardcover
This is, by far, the best book on the lovely Maltese breed that I've ever read. Nicholas Cutillo covers it all. I only wish there was an updated version on the different lines. The chapters on the history and grooming are invaluable. If I could only have one book in my library regarding my beloved breed, it would be this one.

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Elizabeth A. Jesse (elizjesse@aol.com) on January 3, 1999
Format: Hardcover
This informative book is a must have on the shelves of Maltese breeders, show-people, and others who wish to know all there is to know about these pretty little white dogs! There is much information to be learned from this book, as well as a very comprehensive list of the "who is who" in the Maltese dog world. This book should go back in to print!

Format: Hardcover
This book devotes more to grooming directions than anything else I've read about the breed (and I've read a LOT!), as well as the different lines (so you'll know if your dog's pedigree includes good dogs). I wholeheartedly agree with the previous reviewers; this is most important book a new Maltese fancier can get, and it should return to print!!

Format: Hardcover
The book contains 14 chapters 338 pages. Discusses the origins of the breed, who's who in the fancy, the standard,selecting, grooming,showing,breeding.Lots of black and white pictures. I wish these were color.A very good book worth owning. If I got only one book this is the own I would buy.

Format: Hardcover
After purchasing 2 books on "Maltese"( which were no more than generic books about dogs, with Maltese, substituted in genenral dog info, this book came today, and it is the real thing. This gives actual advice from experience and knowledge; I have eagerly delved into it and am glad I read someone else's review that said it was a must have.

By Chris Colgiu on January 3, 2013
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Did not like this too much.
It is OK-ish, but has too much history of certain breeds and/or dog lines/ their owners
I was hopping for more info re: bred history, personality, how to deal with this small dog. etc.
I think is more for professional breeders.
