It's an excellent book, and Kathy Love is an excellent breeder as well. You're in good hands so far.

That's probably the best book out there for corns, may I suggest another good read (if you're looking for info on good beginner snakes) The Ball Python manual. a lot of Barron's books are good too (for general species info).

That's a great book, we have it in our collection. Another one I would suggest if you're into milk snakes is the one by Bob Applegate for 10$ he autographs it and sends it to you.

May you live in interesting times.

I'll second that motion. The Apllegate book is very good. He goes beyond the basic care and shows some case studies. It's one of the best books I have
