    Brian Hare, dog researcher, evolutionary anthropologist, and founder of the Duke Canine Cognition Center, and Vanessa Woods offer revolutionary new insights into dog intelligence and the interior lives of our smartest pets. In the past decade, we have learned more about how dogs think than in the last century. Breakthroughs in cognitive science, pioneered by Brian Hare, have proven dogs have a kind of genius for getting along with people that is unique in the animal kingdom.

    If you could sum up The Genius of Dogs in three words, what would they be?

    excellent book but for my purposes...i skipped most of part 2 and would have skipped part 1...part 3 really got to what i was looking for...not saying the first 2 parts weren't informative but again for my interest...they were far too detailed...

  • For the Love of a Dog: Understanding Emotion in You and Your Best Friend

    Yes, humans and canines are different species, but current research provides fascinating, irrefutable evidence that what we share with our dogs is greater than how we differ. As behaviorist and zoologist Dr. Patricia McConnell tells us in this remarkable new book about emotions in dogs and in people, more and more scientists accept the premise that dogs have rich emotional lives, exhibiting a wide range of feelings, including fear, anger, surprise, sadness, and love.

    Where does For the Love of a Dog rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    at the top of the list...


    What did you like best about this story?

    patricia mcconnel is a great writer..she has such passion but is so pragmatic...i could totally relate to her stories but more importantly...i learned a lot...


    What does Ellen Archer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    the narration was great...not over the top like some...simply perfect...


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from For the Love of a Dog?

    the book is another brick in the foundation of my learning about dogs...it has helped provide me with a path to continue my journey...

  • Pukka's Promise: The Quest for Longer-Lived Dogs

    When Ted Kerasote was ready for a new dog after losing his beloved Merle - who died too soon, as all our dogs do - he knew that he would want to give his puppy Pukka the longest life possible. But how to do that? So much has changed in the way we feed, vaccinate, train, and live with our dogs from even a decade ago. In an adventure that echoes The Omnivore’s Dilemma with a canine spin, Kerasote tackles all those subjects, questioning our conventional wisdom and emerging with vital new information that will surprise even the most knowledgeable dog lovers.
