My only reservation in recommending this book is the outdated emphasis (by sheer volume of information) on how to make more llamas, which is neither appropriate for beginners nor an ethical activity considering the overabundance of cheap, grade, and crossbred llamas today. Likewise, the outdated misinformation about how young male llamas may grow up to misdirect their territorial aggression at humans (unhelpfully labeled "berserk" and attributed only to handled male crias in the book) may lead naive readers astray.
Buy this book for the terrific care and health information; look elsewhere for llama behavior and training information.
