A nice book, but nothing other than the introduction isn't included in his main volumes. If you're a cat lover and want these stories set aside, by all means go ahead. With Herriot you know exactly what you're getting, and if you read him at all you enjoy it, as I do.

For my money, though, the better volumes are the original series in which these stories can be found. There's more there, and it is possible to develop a better sense of his environment and life in the original books.
