The writer distinguishes female and male personality characteristics (making me wish I'd purchased a female). My only quibble with the book is the impression it gives that all of these creatures are amiable, amorous, highly social animals that desire little more than a cooperative human "cuddling partner." The writer might have spared some new adopters unnecessary disappointment by stressing the "prey status" that makes these animals naturally suspicious and evasive. Patience and slow movements will eventually win their trust--but not in all cases. Food will lure them. On the other hand, they're not intelligent enough to know a bribe when they see it.
I am a new adoptive mom of a Guinea and was worried about not being informed and never having owned one before. I had considered adopting a second one as well but wanted to make sure I was well informed enough to care for 1, let alone 2.
This is a fantastic book, and I wouldn't expect anything less from a "Barron's" book, I own a few types of their books for all the animals we own.
Very happy to have this!
