Format: Paperback
While this book covers a lot of territory in only 160 pages, too often the author simply says for the beginner to do something with inadequate, or no, instructions. After buying this book I'm now looking for another, more textbookish book on the subject. Before passing up this book, consider that it has been around since 1969, and survived 29 printings. Also, it is one of the very few books that Amazon has in print on this subject.

I ordered the kindle edition to have it handy. The downside is using the kindle during any of the work. There is always a lot of biological matter to deal with without contaminating your kindle. Best to print out any notes or information before starting if you need the back up. I like the fact that it offers many options. It would help to have more of the pros and cons discussed.

Don't just try to start without some research. Learning this by trial and error could be tough and may expose you to some situations that a little research could avoid. The health and sanitary concerns should not be taken lightly. An advanced schedule and preparation for any of the procedures are good practice.

Not enough detail on the "how to" prepare animals for mounting. How to gut, skin, decontaminate, chemicals for cleaning, preparation and preservation etc. The was not a guide as I had expected.

While this manual and it formulas are long and laborious, if you want good results this is your book.

I have used many of the formula and they have all been very worthwhile.

This is not some silly greasy do it yourself toy. It is serious and the chemicals are not for kids.

The processes are authoritative and smart and work well.

The book is great for a serious user.
