When to Raise Your Eyebrows At Your Leonberger Breeder

That’s a strange title but bear with me. In this post I am reviewing a book containing some strange language and I am just pointing that out. The book I am reviewing is Leonberger: The Complete Leonberger Manual Leonberger Care, Personality, Grooming, Feeding, Health And All Included Paperback – October 18, 2021 by Dr. Aaron Abdul. The paperback is 38 pages, ISBN 979-8499345672, item weight 3.2 ounces, dimensions 5 x 0.09 x 8 inches. You can buy it from Amazon, as a paperback, or e-Book. The paperback version is currently $7.99 on Amazon, and the Kindle version is $2.99.

Below I am posting my Amazon review of Leonberger: The Complete Leonberger Manual Leonberger Care, Personality, Grooming, Feeding, Health And All Included Paperback – October 18, 2021 by Dr. Aaron Abdul. Click here to see my original Amazon review. BTW I gave the book two stars.

If the Breeder Refuses, Raise your Eyebrows

This Leonberger book has a lot of issues including typos, poor grammar, poor punctuation, the wrong choice of words, incomprehensible sentences, unfinished sentences, frequent repetition, and there are a lot of large random gaps between the words. Several lines begin with one word, and then there is a large gap followed by the second word in the sentence at the very end of the line. Basically, the book design is a mess. My guess is that the author does not speak English well and did not hire an editor. My review title refers to this sentence regarding asking for a visit to a breeder; “T 1 If the breeder refuses, raise your eyebrows”. The “T 1” at the beginning I assume is a typo. “Raise your eyebrows” I guess is a mistranslated metaphor. The high frequency of mistakes made it difficult to read the book.

The book contains no pictures or illustrations. The book contains this sentence regarding hip dysplasia “The Leonbergers account for 13% of all cases”. What I believe the author intended to say was “13% of all Leonbergers are afflicted with hip dysplasia” but the sentence reads differently seemingly stating the impossible considering that the Leonberger is a rare breed. I can add that hip dysplasia is more common in other giant breeds.

The book title states, “The Complete Leonberger Manual…”. As you can understand there is nothing complete about a book containing 30 pages of content, written in large print, and with words separated by large random spaces. However, the choice of facts and topics is good, even though the topics are discussed too briefly, and I did not see much incorrect information, which is why I am giving the book two stars instead of one star.

Yes you are right. Poor quality indy books harm all indy authors. There are indy books that are truly great and as good as those by famous authors, plus more personal and unique, like yours, and then there are indy books that are just rip-offs. I’ve read and reviewed worse Leonberger books than this one. One by Nelson Dawson was an unreadable joke but it was pulled by Amazon right after I posted my review. It was written by a Russian who obviously did not know a word of English.
