David Rosenfelt's loyal followers of the Andy Carpenter series are familiar with Tara, the Golden Retriever sidekick. Many also got to know Tara from Dogtripping, David's tales about becoming a slightly nutty dog rescuer and the dog that started it all. Here, finally, is a book all about the inspirational canine who taught David everything he knows. Well, he did know how to tie his shoes before he met and came to love Tara, but that's about it. Through Tara, David learned about dating, about being able to share his emotions, and also about everyday stuff like who gets to use the pillow if several dogs are sleeping in your bed (clue: It's not the human) and why random barking will never be something that can be eliminated. Lessons from Tara is infused with David's trademark wry and self-deprecating sense of humor, and will move listeners to tears and laughter.

Legal Thrillers, crime, fiction. humor and a bit of management sprinkled with some self improvement. All through Audible.
Well if you like this author than nothing in the world can deter you from downloading this book.
But, for someone who is visiting the world of Rosenfelt..I invite you to download this book which will keep you smiling and loving the dogs. Really not much in terms of lessons from Tara..there are no lessons you can put to use on your pets or in your life. This is not a self improvement, pet improvement, behavior loving, PETA selling book...this is just a dog loving guy with an insane sense of humor....writing and rambling in a way that keeps the smile on your face and loving all dogs on this planet!
Audio Book Fiend
I was feeling tired and worn out so started to listen to this to put a smile on my face. This book did so much more than that. My heart feels lighter and David's humor has made my week. I'm going to keep this on my iPhone to listen to whenever I need a smile. 10 stars out of 5! Thank you again David for all the hundreds of laughs you've brought to my life and to leading me to adopt Maddi, the best rescue dog ever.
This is the story of a wonderful man and his awesome wife and their beyond amazing devotion to caring for homeless dogs.
I wish I lived near this couple. My husband and I wish we could do what they have done.
What a great cause!!! I can wholeheartedly applaud the author's commitment to taking care of these dogs. He's a wonderful human being. The caveat was in the book itself, in the style of its writing.
Personally it didn't do it for me. The endless self deprecating attempt at humor was endless. Like a well seasoned meal, this story felt like someone dumped in way too much salt and pepper. It was over the top and distracting. I couldn't get through it.
