The Turtle Lover's Utopia

Book Review: Turtles…As A Hobby

Turtles…As A Hobby
By W.P. Mara

(This article originally published on Turtletopia.com in October 2000.)

Abundant information and many color pictures are what usually make a good book. The ability to keep a reader interested while educating them is essential. “Turtles…as a hobby” has that ability.

The author starts out with a brief overview on the attraction of turtles and how he became involved with them, and from there begins to explain the basics of turtle care. Also, for those picture people out there, you will be happy to know that there were maybe five pages in the whole book that did not have a picture on them. This is definitely a recommended book.
