This was a fascinating book about the psychology of dogs, but based on a much more scientific approach than Cesar Millan's version of dog psychology. This is not so much a training manual, but part advice, part memoir, part comedy - I found the difference between a primate approach and a dog approach to things so interesting, and Patricia McConnell is a very engaging writer. I loved all her anecdotes about sheep herding. As someone who has owned a dog in the past, and hopes to do so again in the future, I think this will really affect the way I approach my relationship with dogs in the future.
