    "It's easy to forget that Amazon even has competitors these days, but Barnes & Noble is still my go-to. I read a lot of novels, and love having bookshelves filled with books. B&N seems to send me coupons all the time, and if you're lucky enough to still have a physical B&N in your area, you can buy online and often go pick up the book to skip the wait on shipping. Great selection as well."

      "I definitely enjoyed this book a lot. The authors, who are obviously very knowledgeable about the history of dogs, are able to present the subject matter in a way where I felt as if I was sitting across the table and having a back and forth discussion. The authors seemed to be able to explain some fo the concepts using very basic and simple analogies that made a lot of sense. Now, whenever, I look at my own dog, I start to think about all this past evolutionary history of dogs that I never knew before I read this book. I would definitely recommend the book regardless of whether or not you own a dog."

That said, if what you need is indeed more of a reference (i.e. you're a professional in this field), you can't go wrong with this volume."
