    "Thought provoking, beautiful language"

    Love the scientific angle author uses to support the points she makes but also the evocative and loving description of her own dog. Really enjoyed this audiobook. Definitely changes the way one will look at a dog going forward!

    "If you know a dog then...."

    You need to read/listen to this book. The author is clearly a dog lover and her insights about how dogs function is wonderful. I took some lessons from this book and used them with my dogs. I have given a couple of copies of this book to other dog owners as a nice way to give them additional understanding of their constant and loyal companion. It is wonderful that the author reads for us. She is not broadway trained but her heart comes through.

    "Good insights on the life of a dog."

    This book is dense with material and study of a dog(s) with some interesting commentary. Listening to this book gave me some good tips for my interaction with my own dog.

    "Wonderful mix of Science and love for dogs"

    The prose and science that make up this book is inspiring.
    The author takes her readers/ listeners through the world of what dogs can experience in hand with the life and memory of Pumpernickel.

    This is a must read/listen for every dog lover who wants to bond stronger with his furry friend.

    "Good story but monotone reader"

    The story was well written and the information provided was very interesting. However, the reader was a little too monotone and mellow in the reading making it difficult to stay focused on the book at times.

    "Disappointed"
    Would you try another book from Alexandra Horowitz and/or Karen White?

    Horowitz yes/ White, absolutely not!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Inside of a Dog?

    Great subject matter provided in a voice reminiscent of of Google Maps.


    What didn’t you like about Karen White’s performance?

    Robotic is the best word for her reading of a very good book


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Inside of a Dog?

    The problem was not with the text of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Why is it that so often, when you provide a book that is read by someone other than the author, the reader seems to have less affect than Siri?

    "A must for dog owners"
    What did you like most about Inside of a Dog?

    This is an extremely interesting audio book. Really well narrated. It was surprisingly engaging and informative and promised to get me looking at my dogs differently. It succeeded in this. The book is intentionally quite amusing in places.


    Any additional comments?

    Any dog owner would benefit from this. It will help you get some understanding of why your dog behaves the way it does and give you some idea about how to influence it. It is not a training guide though

    "Insightful read"

    I'm yet to find a book that so perfectly mirrors how I feel about our canine companions.

    I would recommend this read for anybody, in fact I would insist!
