-- Insight into dragon biology, from flight to reproduction (with tips on how to tell the males from the females)
-- An in-depth look at dragons' habits, including migration, communication, camouflage, and notorious hoarding practices
-- A section on humans and dragons, offering secrets of tracking and taming, deciphering riddles, and becoming a dragon master
-- Practical essentials such as how to keep records, use spells, keep specimens, and care for sick dragons
-- A comprehensive glossary, index, and much more!
