Has anyone read the book Collie Psychology by Carol Price?  Is it any good?  Worthwhile to buy a copy or try to locate one to borrow?

I have a copy. I'm not sure I'd tell anyone to go out a buy it. It's a nice coffee table book about the breed, but if you've been around border collies for some time, there isn't much you'll learn from reading this book.

 

Edited: Maybe I sound too negative for a book where my main issue with it is that it fails to deliver on its title.

I haven't, but I wasn't impressed enough by reviews that I'm at all interested. :P

I think the title is inherently doomed to fail...

Well, after I posted this I looked for some online reviews and didn't find a good one.  I think I'll pass.  Thanks.
