If someone wanted to know how to add and subtract two-digit numbers, you wouldn't just tell them "12-5=7, and 6+2=8, just memorize that and you'll be ok." You would teach them how to count first. Once you know how to count, adding and subtracting are obvious. But in the reptile world, the "12-5=7" method is how almost everyone deals with genetics. Unfortunately, this includes books written by long-time breeders. As a result, people think it's complicated and takes decades to master. They are lost when they encounter "5+3=?" or any other problem whose answer they didn't memorize. But once you know the basics, the rest follows as easily as addition follows counting, and you can tackle any problem, not just the handful you were told to commit to memory.

Genetics For Herpers teaches you how to "count" in genetics first, and then walks you through everything else that flows naturally from the basics. Much of it is so obvious that you will find yourself saying, "of course that's how it would work!" It doesn't take 30 years to master it, or even 30 days. Invest in yourself and your hobby or business, by learning something that will be useful every time you plan your breedings.

The book is 84 pages (71/2" x 51/2") and includes over 120 illustrations plus a glossary. The lessons apply to all herps. You can have a physical copy shipped to you anywhere in the world, or use the online reader for 60 days for just $4.95.
