This book has been in the lending library at work and I've passed over it the last two years due largely to my own preconceived notions based on its size and simplistic publication format. I'm really glad I finally picked it up.

Unlike other raw pet food books that I've read, this one truly is for the layperson, by the layperson. While I find my vet-authored ones indispensable for the science and knowledge, this one is so much more accessible that I'm likely to recommend it as a "first book" for people new to the raw food diet.

MacDonald makes it clear she hasn't always fed this way, making her less of an outsider to the average reader than other books, but she sets an excellent example as someone who adapts when presented with new information that there's a better way to do something. The difference really boils down to "surviving" versus "thriving". She does a nice job of covering basic reasoning, common pet food myths, and most importantly, how to feed raw economically (even for around the price of a better kibble). I also loved the reference section, including other books she recommends for those who want to learn more, as well as informative websites.

Overall, the best basic raw dog food book I've come across and thus, the one I'll be recommending most frequently. Anyone with a dog should read it, even if they currently can only incorporate some of the knowledge in their own routine. I plan to reread it so I'm better able to answer questions if anyone has any, but beyond that, there's not a lot of rereadability to this simple a primer. A great book to pass around and share. ( )
