Daniel Tosh is hilarious if you don't mind very politically incorrect humor. If you have seen his Comedy Central special you have heard some of these tracks, but there are some different bits as well. This purchase is well worth it for true Tosh fans.
I enjoyed this book though it was not quite what I expected. It does start out slow, stating information about human brain chemistry and wolf brain chemistry and how they relates to the evolution of the dog. However, it eventually comes together and you realize why the author goes into such detail. There are some cute stories about the author's dog, but I would have liked more anectodes. I was hoping for more information about the evolution of specific dog breeds and their orginal uses which did come up briefly, but was definitely not enough. The narrator does an excellent job. This book was just not quite what I expected, but if you are a true dog lover or are just interested in evolutionary science you will probably enjoy this book. If you are looking for anectodes and practical information about dogs, this book will probably be too slow and scientific for you.
After reading The Survivor's Club by Ben Sherwood I was looking for a good listen along the same lines. This audiobook was disappointing. It talks mostly about how your brain reacts to crisis situations and sprinkles in a few stories to keep it from getting too mundane. I appreciated the information on brain chemistry and functioning, but would have liked more stories and practical survival strategies. For a true adventurer, I would recommend this book. Otherwise, I would recommend Sherwood's book.
