I have not owned a rabbit since I was a child, and after several decades have decided to enjoy rabbits again. I was given two rabbits as (requested) gifts, and have been researching them avidly for about the last 3 months. I have purchased several rabbit books, trying to "get up to speed" before starting to show, with plans of breeding fine quality pet and show rabbits. Of all the books I have purchased to date, this one is by far the most comprehensive and useful, surpassing more expensive books easily. If your budget is limited, and your level of involvement undecided, this is the book for you! And if you just appreciate a well written and handsomely illustrated book, don't miss it.

Having owned rabbits in the past I found this book extrememly useful and informative. This book provided me with behavioral information I never knew that will help me with my future rabbit. Other books I found to be too simplistic, boring or way too technical for the average consumer. The Rabbit Handbook kept my insterest from cover to cover and had a consistant level of information the average consumer could understand and put into use.

As the proud owner of two house rabbits I would reccomend this book to anyone considering a bunny companion.I don't know what I would have done without it when I first got my bunnies, and I still use it today a year later. The Rabbit Handbook is the most complete book I have found so far,great for beginners and experts alike.It covers important topics such as how to choose a rabbit that's right for you, bunny behavior, proper diet, grooming, rabbit-proofing your house, different types of housing for bunnies, breeding rabbits, showing rabbits and many more great subjects. I found the detailed descriptions in the section on rabbit diseases and health conditions particuarly helpful. It is also full of wonderful photos and illustrations. If you have rabbits, get this book!

This book was easy to read and gave me the answers to my questions. There were many things in it I had never heard about rabbits before. The pictures are very colorful and really cute. The twin bunnies were a nice touch. Kids will like flipping through the books just to look at the pictures. The sections on how to pick a rabbit and training them were particularly useful.
I would recommend this book for anyone interested in getting a pet rabbit or for those who already have one.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book before I adopted my first rabbit, just to make sure that I could handle whatever responsibilities come along with having a pet rabbit. The book gives you advice on which breed is best for you, what to expect as your bunny grows, what to feed, what not to feed, recommended toys, behavior interpretations, common rabbit diseases, symptoms and treatments. I still refer to it whenever I have any concerns. Nothing will substitute a vet visit when your bunny is sick, but you can at least have an idea when a vet visit is necessary. I also refer to this book as my bible. The information is concise and easy to understand, and also easy to find, as the book is very well organized. The only suggestion I would make is to inclue a picture of a Flemish Giant, because that is fast becoming a very popular pet breed. Other than that, the book is perfect.

This book was written by a veterinarian and is recommended by my veterinarian. It offers great guidelines for medical care and makes medical conditions easy to understand which helps me work better with my veterinarian. In addition, there is valuable information on behavior, training, diet and housing.

The book is very informative. However, there should be more information on baby rabbits - all their stages of growth.
