Anoles book hits mark. Jan. 13 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is an excellent book for beginners to keeping anoles. Though quite commonly sold as pets, decent, correct information about their care is rare. The price is reasonable, and the pictures both pretty and illustrative. The reviewers who complained about "big words" and difficult text will find the book easier to read after they finish high school.

Decent, but we need better. Feb. 19 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
It's hard to find reliable care books for reptiles theses days. Mostly because of product placement. All too often I see photos of poor UVB lights, heat rocks, or harmful cage substrate in books just because of product placement (and the author probably got paid).
This book is tolerable. Though it doesn't get an A from me. It's not exactly brand new, and that is the most obvious reason books are bad. They make excellent resources for unchangable facts such as "green anoles are green when healthy." But newsletters, journals, and authentic online sources are better.
This is probably the best anole book out there though. But it's truly not enough folks. Like all books he tries to stress the things to do. But like all books he doesn't stress the worse things not to do.
Information on harmful products to avoid , cutting edge health remedies, which brands of UVB light are best, very explicit and dirty issues with housing anoles with other species, information on better insects such as silkworms (we need to abolish meal worms and wax worms already, folks!), and things about anole diets one must know (such as why pet store vitamins may be bad and why canned or commerical diets are a joke).
Like I said, it's good to get one interested. But it's not the anole care bible by a long shot.

Don't listen to the others! This book is the best. July 21 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
The information is specific and accurate. Everyone that knows lizards will recommend this book. It was the first reptile care book I ever bought and it makes everything you need to know about these lizards conveniently (and affordably) available.

Pretty Good June 16 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This seems to be a good book for people who are familiar with keeping lizards, but not anoles in particular. Since anoles are my first reptile pet, I found some parts of the book hard to follow and a lot of my questions were unanswered.
