    1. I really like this book. Many different studies are evaluated in a multi point system: First the research lay out, its pros and cons, then the results, and at the end of each chapter everything is summarized concisely for the reader's easy access. Different areas are covered- Training (aversives vs R+, clicker, etc), behavior, dog-human interactions, and more. Since it gives the reader a lot to digest and to think about, it may not be a book for people interested in answers only, but rather for [...]

    2. Worth reading not only for its discussion of dog training science, but also for basic guidelines and advice about how to read and understand science writing. The table of contents offers a good overview of some current popular issues. I especially enjoyed reading the chapter on the Benjamin Franklin effect. Anyone working with shelter dogs should read the 2 chapters on behavior assessment tests.

    3. This had a fantastic collection of essays going through recent scientific studies. I learned quite a bit and it was a joy to read.
