Slow-paced but chock-full of information. At one point the author says he wrote the bk on his computer; I could tell. Don't read this for the prose style; just for the info.

I disagree -- I'm having a great time reading it, and am reading it for the science—I have all the cat care books I need, thanks. Got halfway through before my loan expired, and am now on a very long wait list.

Contrary to the reviews, this is not an easy read. The word "science" in the title is much more accurate than the phrase "Make You A Better Friend to your Pet". It is less a "how to" book than a textbook covering all aspects of cats, mostly from a scientific point of view. It is what I would expect from a required text for a college course about cats and other domestic animals. There may be info that can "make" you a better friend to your cat, but is is not easy to find. Much more practical information is available in books that cover how to care for a cat.
