    Review quote
    "For the keen enthusiast there is one book that is regarded world wide as the bible of tarantula keeping and that book is The Tarantula Keeper's Guide The book is in reality a keeper's manual as well as being a very enjoyable read for the enthusiast. It will immediately become your first port of call for reference purposes. It is suitable for beginner through to advanced enthusiasts I cannot recommend this book too highly. Every tarantula keeper should have a copy in their library. If you only buy one book on tarantulas this should be that book. Run, don't walk to your computer and order a copy now."
