Review by

This is my first "For Dummies" book and it was actually quite a nice read. The author wrote simply defining things I might not have understood and still found occasions to work in humor. I was worried that this book would end up being a text book to just use for reference but I actually enjoyed reading it and I cant wait to have my own leopard gecko knowing I can properly care for it.
