Terrie Lyons of Terrie Lyons of Budletts Maine Coons says "An excellent book covering all aspects of the maine coon cat from kitten to old age, the author is a very knowledgeable person on the breed . It is not just an ordinary text book on maine coons, she writes about her experiences, which are similar to my own. I have many maine coon books in my collection but this one beats them all. Thoroughly recommended reading especially if you are considering buying a kitten"Stephen Reid, an Amazon TOP 500 REVIEWER says "We bought this book via Amazon and find it very good. It covers pretty well everything an owner might wish to know: the background to the breed, how to find a breeder, what to do on becoming an owner, how to look after them, feeding regimes, grooming and health issues. The book does genuinely seem to be written for the Maine Coon owner: yes, there are some sections that are 'generic cat' but not so much that it looks as if a standard book about cats has been crudely adapted. It is therefore highly specific to the breed and useful for that.The illustrations in this book are black-and white: only the outer covers are in colour. It really is pitched as an owners' guide and not a coffee table book. If you already own, or are minded to obtain, a Maine Coon, you will find this a useful book. It's easy to read, well-organised and reasonably clearly printed."
