    One of art's purest challenges is to translate a human being into words. The New Yorker magazine has met this challenge more often and more successfully than any other modern American journal. Starting with its light fantastic evocations of the glamorous and the idiosyncratic in the '20s and continuing to the present, with complex pictures of such contemporaries as Marlon Brando and Richard Pryor, The New Yorker's Profiles have presented readers with a vast and brilliant portrait gallery.

    Jody R. Nathan says: "Exceptional writing makes this a fascinating read"
    "Abridged after all"
    Overall

    These profiles are so extraordinary that I searched the Internet for others, and discovered the table of contents for this book. Having ordered from Audible an "unabridged" book, I was astonished to find that the Audible version omits about half the content of the print edition. Even at half its advertised length, the Audible version is a gem and well worth it.

    How do dogs think? Do they fantasize? Do they dream? What do their barks, whines, and growls tell other dogs? How do they communicate in groups, and why do they form hierarchies? What do dogs want? Anthropologist Elizabeth Marshall Thomas attempts to answer these and other questions about a species that has been with mankind for over 20,000 years and still remains a mystery. Based on 30 years and hundreds of thousands of hours of research, this volume describes behavior every dog owner has seen thousands of times but will now understand for only the first time.

    Monica says: "Disappointing and dangerously incorrect"
    "TomHutch is right--a very bad book"
    Overall

    Treacley, self-indulgent, self-consciously cute and embarrassingly ignorant, this novel disguised as nonfiction is a disservice to dog lovers. You know you are in weird territory when the author refers to her dog's canine mate as 'husband.' A better choice by far is 'Cesar's Way.'
