"The Truth About Dogs" will use cutting-edge scientific research (including evidence from the Dog Genome Project) to teach readers to think, if not like a dog, then at least like a biologist. The truth of dog behavior is far more complex -- and interesting -- than we suppose, grounded in evolutionary strategies for survival. This book will give answers that come straight from the dog's mouth, unfiltered by human preconceptions and wishes, and better information than most clueless and hapless dog owners have had over the past 100,000 years. Readers of "The Truth About Dogs" will never look at their dogs the same way again.
