    Read before purchasing a Siberian

    An honest look at the Siberian Husky

    I have looked at or own and read every Siberian Husky book written and found that this one has the most useful information on the the breed. It gives useful information on the attitude and temperment of the breed as well as training techniques that work well for the Siberian and it's owner. Put together in an easy to read and understand text, this book offers a wide spectrum of information for the beginner and the experianced Siberian owner. The only down side to the book is it does not contain many pictures. A must have for your Siberian's library.
