This review is from: Tarantula Keeper's Guide, The (Paperback)
For everyone who is interested in getting into the hobby you will find that this book is reccomended above all others. So why am I giving it a 3 star rating? It's wordy and lengthy and might not appeal to the novice who wants straight to the point information on the raising and caring of spiderlings and tarantulas. It sometimes drags on and repeats information that it has stated in other chapters. I wish it had better photographic examples of housing, raising, products. It does offer good historical information on the origin of the tarantula and is still a good book to have in your library.

I agree with your comments. When I read a book about the husbandry of animals, I don't mind a little natural history; but I'm not interested in what year a certain species was discovered or other useless information. I want information about the needs of each species, including cage size, substrate to use, the percent humidity needed for the species in question, diet preferences, and information on breeding. We don't need to know that one night your king baboon tarantula escaped from its cage, crawled into your bed while you were asleep, bit you and then proceeded to feast on your buttocks.
