When I was approached by Weatherhill, a Japanese-owned publishing company, to
write a book on Goldfish for the American market, I wanted it to be the finest,
most accurate and most complete gathering of helpful Goldfish information ever
assembled in one source. It's been over a year and a half of hard work from

kind of book I wanted. I thank my co author and good friend Dr. Johnson and
everyone else who made this book possible.
I hope you enjoy it.
