I got this book before I got my hamster. I have had him for almost 2 years now, and although I recommend this book there are a few things that I think aren't true. First, it recommends feeding your hamster Gaterade to give it electroites. I would not do this in any circumstance. Secondly, it stresses tubes and tube cages. Although I know that this works for some, my hamster won't go in his small tube complex that I set up inside the cage unless he absolutely has to (to find a treat LOL). My dad and I built my hamster a 4'x3'x1' hamster cage and he seems a lot happier in that. All in all, I'd recommend this book just so long as you have other info sources to make sure you're doing the right thing.

This product was good for beginners although somethings I recommend not doing, like feeding your hamster gaterade to give it some electrolites when you bring it home. Although it does have some great ideas but you still need to use other references to make sure what your doing is accurate.
