I must say I chose WELL. If you absolutely do not know anything about goats this book is a good intro into wetting the brain for more input. I didn't put it down once I picked it up feeling like all the fancy words people were using in the forums or websites now made complete sense. By no means is this a be all end all book-do get more books that go into greater detail like nutrition, breeds, housing, and the like. This book isn't thorough on all that has to do with goat owning. No book will have that kind of information but Your Goats is a great start for beginners.
My nitpicks are I would like to see it updated with nods to additional breeds including newer ones (like Kinder or Pygora ) along with a bigger breeder list (both on and off the web addresses included), a few more additional books specifically to nutrition and/or treating the goats naturally.
The last one isn't a must have but it is nice to know that you can treat them without reverting to powerful chemicals. Again great book for beginners, maybe even experienced people who left the goat world and now are coming back can benefit from some foundational brush up. This one will be well loved for a while.
