    This is the best short version, inexpensive book for enthusiasts on tarantulas and other arachnids written by a professional arachnologist with a deep understanding of the needs of enthusiasts.

    This is probably the best, or second best book on Tarantulas, with a nice section on other arachnids. This book is a MUST HAVE for anyone that has tarantulas, or is thinking about getting one.
    Good information, and good pictures too....
    I would highly recommend this book

    This is another very good book that every tarantuila person needs to have in their collection. Lots of nice pictures too

    Mostly positive.

    Although there's a lot of good information in this book, some of it has been improved, changed, corrected and/or discarded. While it's pretty good to have on the shelf I recommend getting a more up to date book for a first tarantula book.

    There's a seemingly good section on breeding (I say seemingly because I have yet to breed... myself or tarantulas) and the section on common tarantulas is pretty interesting as well. Many nice pictures. Of course the book is over a decade old so there have been some name changes as well.

    I do recommend this book but suggest a more up to date book first.
