I didn't think a book this size (maybe 1/4" thick) could have much info in it, but it has a tremendous amount for a "beginner" book. If you are thinking of getting a ball python, this is the first book you should read. If you do not plan on breeding them, this could be the only book you'll ever need to successfully keep healthy BPs.
This was a pretty good book for a beginner. If you want a quick read with the basic facts, this is a good book for you. There were times however the author touched on a subject that needed a more in depth explanation that I wished I would have gotten. Sometimes also, something was mentioned, that a picture of it would have been beneficial. But all around this is a great book for a first time owner that needs a fairly quick read of all the basics.
This is a great beginners book, with an amazing broad overview of Ball Pythons. I was a little disappointed with the lack of specific details. The book will make references to products but not brand names, which is a little frustrating when attempting to look for a product online. Overall A great book for beginners.
When I first bought this book, Ball Pythons were new to me. This book gives you all the information that you need to get into the hobby. Two Ball Pythons and several other snake species later, I will still pull my Ball Python book off the shelf to look something up. The basics are all there!
It is very detailed and you can find mostly everything you need in it (i.e. medical issues, housing, husbandry, diet, etc.). It was written by a woman who keeps and breeds thousands of ball pythons so you can assume she knows her stuff.
This is a really good step-by-step guide to first time snake owners. After reading the other reviews for this, I do agree with them in that it could use some more elaboration on certain topics. But, it is really informative & useful. Don't pass it up!
This book was very informative and I even used the material in a project I had to present for school TY
It's basic. Very basic. I'm new enough to ball pythons that I didn't find anything terribly wrong inside it.The part about microwaves cooking from the inside out was pretty laughable though.You could probably find most of this information online with ease. That doesn't mean this book is without value. It's a quick read, and it covers the basics.
