I have Dr. Fox's second edition and frankly I can't read most of it. I
don't fault Dr. Fox at all, it's just that he wrote it for vets and
researchers and I don't speak their language. I can read Dr. Purcell's
book and usually don't have to look up any words. Hillyer & Qusenberry
is somewhere inbetween the two extremes. I'm waiting for their new
edition to come out.
