I found this book to be the most useful one I ever got. It's not easy to find books about pet-rats at all, but from the ones I found this one is clearly the best. It looks on the topic of rats from an quite "british" side as its author, Nick Mays, is president of the National Fancy Rat Society in England. But the facts he mentions in his book include most of the things a pet rat owner should know about. Even if some topics not comply with the up-to-date knowledge of the rat-experts on the rat mailing list (i.e. concerning the topic of bedding) it is the perfect start for anyone who plans to get a couple of rats.

I would really enjoy to get some guest reviews on the books you see here. If you send me a comment on any of the reviewed books (it's only one now, I know, but more will follow!) by email I will publish it here on my pages with your name mentioned as author.
