As a first-timer, I found the book useful, especially how to calculate the weight of a pig (heart girth ^2 * length / 400). I also thought their viewpoint (that breeding a sow was more difficult than buying weaners) honest.
There is enough information here not available in the Storey guide
that I think it is worth your time to get a hold of the book and read it. Particularly, estimating the weight of a pig (without scales) as well as processing and butchering the pig on your own.
This is a book geared at the homesteader looking at raising 1-3 hogs.
