This book gives a lot of information about Koi care, types of koi, as well as pools/ponds. Are there better books out there for say diseases? Yes. But this book gives an excelent overview of all topics relating to having Koi.

I saw someone was upset about the info on ponds, but I feel exactly the opposite. Their living area is a very important topic for keeping fish of any type. If the pond is too small, or the water quality goes out of wack you might as well hook them, scale them, and gut them. I am not advocating this (I don't know how they would taste).

My one comlaint would be the number of color photos, but again you can get those in other books, which don't have the vast amount of info in here.

Buy it you'll like it.

This turned out to be more of an in depth journey into the world of Koi than I thought. It touches on all aspects of owning and obtaining koi, as well as recommendations for what to do if you decide to stop pursuing the hobby altogether.

I have 4 large natural bottom ponds and this book has nothing but caring for these fish in artificial ponds. Maybe I just didn't research this book well enough, but it does have a good deal of understandable information in it.

Super information. Clear info, easy to understand. I bought this book before I had my 3,000 gal. pond built. It really helped me understand what type/kind of filtration I would need/want.
I still look things up, now 3 years into the hobby of keeping a pond with great fish!

I usually like the Dummies books but this one wasn't what I was looking for. There was too much focus on things like pond design and building and not enough on caring for koi, which is what I needed. Fortunately, Amazon has a terrific return policy so they rate 5 stars.
Nilabor
It has a lot of practical information but I have had fish since 1965, so it was limited as far as new information for me. It is a good little book, but not my favorite or even in my top 2. For the new koi owner it would be very helpful to show basic requirement for healthy koi living standards. In the right bginners hands it could save them from making expensive mistakes, so there is a nitch for this book. :-)
Kea
Excellent source of information for beginners. Covers the obvious and also the important but most often overlooked aspects of Koi. Could use more descriptions on the color varieties, but there are other books for that. If you want to know what's involved in keeping Koi, this should be your first book.
Needed something basic for my spouse. Good reference. Hopefully we can keep our koi happy.
