I also got mine today and while I have only had time to flick through it, it is really impressive
Quote:
would recomend this book not just to adults but proberbly 13 years and up and possibly younger for the enthusiastic child. i do not feel their is a need for any science education as this book fulfills sigis' promise of being written for the ignorant in such fields.


As I had a quick look I remarked to OH that it would be a great book for our local school library..Especially for the Ag dept' and biology classes.
Well done :bounce: :bounce:

Thanks so much David :D :D :D

Mine arrived the other day too, and my other-half even sat there and went through it with me (I admit our first browse was just that, a full cover to cover browse of all the illustrations and pictures).

Since then I've been reading snipits every morning with a coffee. It is written is a very understandable format (although I think re-reading will help with digestion!). I think it will be a very helpful reference for me...I knew I was taking pics of chicken down for some reason.

Thank you for the great book!

I would like to thank you all for your support, and kind works.
As many would know we originally had hoped to publish the book in Australia, but this was not meant to be. Fortunately for the consumers the eventual hardback was cheaper than the original paperback. We were told a book of this type, being of limited interest, and by unknown authors would be lucky to sell 50 copies in 5 years.
All the original stock the publisher advanced has gone, in a matter of a few weeks .
I hope to be able to arrange for more but need to meet the publishers minimum shipping order of 17 books.
So if anyone still wants one, or knows anyone that does ,please contact me,
David

I would like to recommend that our council library acquire at least one copy. :)

To do this I need to complete a form with quite a bit of information, some of which I have not yet seen in this thread - sorry if I missed the ISBN etc. I think most institutions would also need similar info which is why I am going to try to post a copy of the form we need to fill in.

I would be grateful if someone would fill in the blanks for me please.

Better reword that - provide info so I can fill in :P)

UPDATE,
I have organised extra stock of books from the Publishers, but due to Easter & Sigi doing a promotional visit to the USA I don't expect them to arrive until week commencing 4th May.
I will be in touch with all who are waiting, but if anyone else is interested please have them PM me or email on xioc(at)bigpond(dot)net(dot)au.
Feel free to show the book around to your friends, at clubs or shows, as a favour to me.
Many thanks
David

Got mine yesterday David, thanks - it's fantastic and has reminded me how much I don't remember about genetics from uni!
Excellent work.
Cheers,
Jodie.
