Make no mistake, Jim Comey is a writer. This book is compelling and perfectly paced, I couldn't put it down. It is simultaneously all about Trump and barely about Trump; it's about leadership, good leaders and bad leaders... and corrupt leaders. This isn't a tell-all. It's a morality play.

Being a Dog is a scientifically rigorous book that presents cutting-edge research with literary flair. Revealing such surprising facts as panting dogs cannot smell to explaining how dogs tell time by detecting lingering smells, Horowitz covers the topic of noses - both canine and human - from curious and always fascinating angles. As we come to understand how rich, complex, and exciting the world around us appears to a dog's sense of smell, we can begin to better appreciate it through our own.

This book is pure poetry. The science is certainly there and very accessible but the book is a love poem to dogs. The fact that Dr. Horowitz reads the work herself makes the poetic nature of the prose hit even harder. I've had dogs all my life, I'm 53, and this book has opened my eyes to the world of my current dog in ways that I never expected. I thought I was buying a dog psychology book, and that's what I got, but I got so much more. As I listen to the descriptions of how dogs experience the world, I'm often moved to tears by the beauty of the words. Because of this book, the daily walks with my dog are a bit longer, a bit slower, and I'm less likely to pull him away from something I'd find revolting.

If you have a dog, you should buy this book.
If you're thinking of getting one, you NEED to buy this book.
