    Which book is your favorite?

    Do you have a preferred book that explains how to judge the quality of a fish? There are a few out there....

    Ditto. I am especially fond of the liberal use of the phrase, "..if you have the chance, you should not hestitate to buy this koi.......it will become your special treasure." I tell ya', these books definitely fuel the addiction of koi junkies!

    Kate McGill's book KOI APPRECIATION the first step, is excellent for the beginner and the advanced hobbyist. It is a great desk reference book you will find yourself going back to over and over again. ***** five stars.
