If you are an animal lover like me, this book has the best photographs of different cat breeds I've ever seen. This is a nice hardback book, larger in size than most. The most interesting breed is the Sphinx, a hairless cat which looks like an alien. Contrary to popular belief, this cat is very affectionate, and loves being cuddled. His temperment is nothing like the cat from hell portrayed on "Friends" with "Rachael".
