The book actually got here faster than expected, so that's also a plus.
The cover was very LIGHTLY scratched on the top-left corner, but you can tell it was from the expedition, the book itself was sent new, but the package wasn't that much of a great protection against bad handling (again, from the couriers, and anyway you can't really know what exactly caused the scratches).
I would've given it a 4.9/5 because of the tiny scratches, but I'm not gonna give a 4/5, because the book itself deserves more than that.
I sat down and promptly read it from cover to cover.
I was, a bit disappointed, actually. While it did have great information, this book is very much targeted towards beginners. It does not even touch on some issues for those of us who have been in the hobby a very long time. Then the last bit of the book is all pictures and descriptions of morphs.
I won't say I didn't enjoy it, because I did. I won't say it's useless, because it's not. I have it up on one of my racks in my reptile room, and thumb through it periodically. It is handy o have to show visitors what I'm talking about, or to loan to first-time ball python people in my life.
I suppose after reading the book, I just got a big sense of "Well... I already knew THAT..."
Maybe it's just a case of having too much buildup. I was expecting "the only book I will ever need". And this is, not everything I was told it was. Very handy, very informative, but not quintessentially necessary, or "the only book you'll ever need about ball pythons."
I do hope they'll come out with "The more complete ball python" as they did for chondros. I'll certainly buy it, and perhaps it will fill the gaps of this one. One can only hope. :)
So, overall, I could take or leave this book. Not happy having spent $50 on it, though. Should have waited until the price went down on it. ~.~
