    Dogs have been mankind's faithful companions for tens of thousands of years, yet today they are regularly treated as either pack-following wolves or furry humans. The truth is, dogs are neither - and our misunderstanding has put them in serious crisis. What dogs really need is a spokesperson, someone who will assert their specific needs.

    What made the experience of listening to Dog Sense the most enjoyable?

    I found the scientific information regarding learning theory and the intelligence of dogs very interesting and useful. I'm sure I will return to these sections again and study them more closely.


    What was most disappointing about John Bradshaw’s story?

    Mr. Bradshaw's statement that dogs are "only pets" these days and should have the "hunt, herd, gaurd" bred out of them to make them better companions is offensive. 99% of the people I know with hunting dogs, hunt with them. Including myself. And they are still great pets. Mr. Bradshaw shows such diligence in his research until he gets to this point. He states no statistics, facts or studies showing how many people use thier dogs for the functions they were intended for. He instead starts saying things like "most" and "many"- where are the numbers?


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This book was great in bits and pieces, I couldn't listen to it all at once as it had a lot of detailed information that needed to be digested. I'm sure there are chapters I will study again.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Nicole says: "You love it or you hate it..."
    "Was that really the end?"
    Overall

    OMG! 30 hours of listening this and then that terrible ending. And then he pulls off with a fleating postscript the death of half of the the only truly happy people in the book. And I have never wanted to throttle a teenage girl like I wanted to AMY,I hope he does do another book and correct all the plot errors of this one. Oh and one more thing NEVER TRUST A BOOK STEPHEN KING RAVES ABOUT is my new rule of thumb.

    In just a few short years, Richard K. Morgan has vaulted to the pinnacle of the science fiction world. Now he turns his iconoclastic talents to epic fantasy, crafting a darkly violent, tautly plotted adventure sure to thrill old fans and captivate new readers.

    Forest says: "This isn't your father's gay hero!"
    "This should be listed as fantasy gay porn."
    Overall

    The number of gay sex scenes and foul language that are in this book should have at least required a warning lable be attached to this offering. And when I say sex scenes I mean GRAFFIC sex scenes and GRAFFIC language! I am surprised with audible for not warning about this book.
