I thought this book would be more detailed in scope than it was. In fact, I think the website [...] is in some ways more informative than this book. I would still recommend purchasing it if you want to absorb as many viewpoints as you can. I feel the author was writing a primer, and not an extensive book on the subject of tortoises. This would be an excellent book for the newbie to tortoises, but for one who has cruised the internet on the tortoises, it may be a disappointment, but it is still worth owning.
I really enjoyed this book!
We have a new Russian Tortoise and needed a beginner's guide of how to house, feed and care for our tortoise. The pictures are wonderful in the book and the author took the time to point out different thoughts, controversial ways and the "why's" of caring for your tortoise when it's not in its natural habitat. I would recommend this book to those wanting to know more about their new pet. My children enjoyed the pictures and the chapters are thorough, yet not exhaustive. For the family needing more than what the pet store gives you, this book is the perfect solution.
This is the type of book that rightfully belongs in the children's section of the public library, and is laid out simple enough that even a kindergartener should have no major trouble with it.

On the other hand, for a serious student of herpetology, this book will be too simplistic, and it should be noted that much of the information is no longer particularily accurate. And, I want to stress to novice toirtoise owners, due to the dated and less-than-accurate information, there are much better books on tortoise care available.
