this book is pretty short so it is a quick read. the sections are clearly laid out and easy to navigate so you can skip around to topics of interest. it had info on color patterns and about purebreads which i wasn't interested in but since sections are marked clearly you can get to parts you will want to read. this is a good guide if you are a first time ragdoll owner. there are tips on diet and first aid that would be important to anyone. one nice thing is that there are plenty of color photos!
