Other Things to Expect in the Book
The classical approaches to production strategies, product processing, and marketing are discussed within the text. Also highlighted are possible solutions to some often encountered challenges in the practice.
Snail production is encouraged as a means to wealth creation via the sales of its soft meat and products/by-products, and to promote the general welfare of the populace using the flagged nutrient and medicinal values. Farming is suggested for each household because it requires less space, does not constitute any significant environmental nuisance(noise- and odor-wise), is less laborious, and is not time-consuming.
Furthermore, the animal is highly-priced (were eaten) and harmless, unlike other conventional meat animals. Farming is thus recommended for all, even the less privileged.

The books (volumes 1&2) are written to enrich your understanding of the subject matter and principles of farming edible (giant) land snails economically, taking advantage of the flagged socio-medico-economic values displayed by these wonderful creatures.
Volume 1 deals more with the biology and farming techniques, while volume 2 basically highlights the techniques involved in managing and marketing farmed snails. Issues such as managing peculiar farming challenges; socio-economic importance of farmed snails; processing, packaging, and marketing modalities, and mini-financial plan on farming snails are dealt with in volume 2.
