Wonderful, well written book on the power of positive reinforcement -- not only with training dogs, but people too!
Karen Pryor is an astute and communicative trainer in the realms of getting the results you want without aggression, punishment, harassment or guilt. It goes beyond the concept of "manipulation" into the more enlightened aspects of filling needs in exchange for behaviors. Try it on your spouse!
