Pot-Bellied Pigs As a Family Pet

Reviewer: A reader from Northfield,, MN USA
Michael Taylor has all the basics in this 192 page book, including health, selection, and training. What I found disappointing was his repeated use of the same pigs in different photos (photos about 1 in 3 pages), and to some extent full pages of pig cartoons, and also wide strips of color on the sides of the pages. It has a good index, although the titles in the sections are not as easy to spot, due to a two column lay out. Still, for those seeking pig knowledge, the information is there, and it is a good starter book.
