Not for me

This book, for me, was an example of when not to believe the positive reviews. From the mispronunciation of words by the narrator to the repetitive content of the author, I was very put off with having bought it. At one point, the author says that he spent days and some nights researching - to that, I say it shows. This seemed like a term paper that was stretched into a book by restating the same information, sometimes with exactly the same sentences. I am VERY thankful that Audible has such a wonderful exchange policy.

Some useful info, but nearly all second hand

Written in broken English and read by someone who likes the sound of their voice but who emphasises words in a way that is tedious and devoid of understanding.

These two books do contain some useful info, but are written by collation of other sources by someone who has no first hand experience of either goats or chickens but at least is happy to admit it.

I suppose in a way the flaws in the book make it in some ways more interesting but on balance they tested my patience rather than sustained it.
