INSIDE OF A DOG; Outside of Libraries

This Sunday’s NYT BR enthusiastically reviews Inside of a Dog, a new book that takes “an informed imaginative leap inside of a dog — to see what it is like to be a dog; what the world is like from a dog’s point of view.”

The review itself gives a fascinating look at how differently dogs perceive the world from humans (they truly are “all nose”) and disagrees with the “the currently fashionable alpha dog ‘pack theories’ of dog training.”

The book is currently at #20 and rising on Amazon. Few libraries show it on order; those that have ordered it are showing holds.
