review 1: I am a loyal viewer of the Incredible Dr. Pol show on Nat Wild Geo TV and would marry his son, Charles in an instant if we were the same age :) My favorite chapters of the book was when he wrote about his life growing up in the Netherlands, how and why he became a vet, when he met his wife Diane, how they began their own vet practice how they started the TV show and of course his children (although I really wanted to learn more about his daughters).

Entertaining, but covers much of what has been included in the tv show.
I liked the nice, simple, stories. I'm curious about the show.
I'd give it more stars if I could.
I really liked this book!
