I was beyond stoked to read this book because as a cynophile, I love books about dogs as much as I love dogs. I love to learn as much as I can about the four-legged friends who hold my heart so I jumped at the chance to read this.
Sadly, despite it’s intriguing title and author’s best-selling reputation, this book was mostly like reading an animal science textbook and I’ve never been someone who reads textbooks for leisure.
I would give this book overall two stars because although I thought it was dry and overly wordy (and nerdy), I feel that some people who give it a try would find that they learn a lot from it.
The author is a very intelligent human (an adjunct professor at Barnard College) with multiple degrees (She received her M.S. and Ph.D. in Cognitive Science from the University of California, San Diego, and a B.A. in Philosophy from the University of Pennsylvania) in her field of animal psychology and behavior which makes me still want to read her NYT #1 Bestseller. Stay tuned for that review!
