I've contacted both Amazon and Kobo Andy and it looks as though I shall have wait for the printed book or buy a Kindle. :( I'm not fond of a lot of reading on my PC.

Is this not available as a .PDF? If not, can somebody please convert to .PDF? It saves people needing to download additional software (even if it is free :) )

No. Sorry. It is a Kindle licensed book and is not available in any other format and may not be converted due to copyright restrictions.

Have now read the book and think it is great. Will definitely be recommending it on my website and to all other keepers I know. Really accessible information and some great photos too. Thanks Andy and all who contributed to it. Jacqui

A great little book Andy .
As you said anyone one who can access the forum can now download this book onto their laptop / computer or palmtop. you don't need to use a kindle.

Very informative and ideal for lots of the questions usually asked.

Well Done. ;)
Please consider the environment before printing this post!!

I'll bet you recognise at least one of those natural habitats shown in the book, Graham!

If anyone who has read it could contribute a brief review to Amazon, that would be great, too.

The object here was to try to balance some often quite difficult-to-grasp nutritional and environmental "stuff" that is critical to good husbandry with an easy-to-read style. The book is aimed at "yer average keeper", rather than the super experienced expert-level denizens of this forum. There is such a lot of absolute lethal trash out there these days, especially on some forums and websites, that presenting a more reasoned, balanced view is more important than ever.
