Dr. Hare discovered some interesting things that dogs could do awhile back. Then many years later he wrote this book with Vanessa Woods. While taking his course on Coursera I read this book and found it to be rather enlightening.
Ease of Reading(10/10): I went through this book rather quickly.
Usefulness of Information(8/10): Some of the information is slightly biographical but I found that it lends itself well to keeping you interested and in giving you an understanding for the processes that went into the conclusions his research has fetched.
Cost: Amazon.ca has this book for $15.86 paperback. It is also available in hard cover and Kindle with higher and lower values respectively.
Bottom Line: This is a book that leaves the reader understanding to some extent what cognition is and how it works in their dog. I feel that this is a useful addition to a persons readings so that they can be more sympathetic to their canine companion. I know I personally had a greater appreciate of Lilo’s mind and why she stumbles on certain activities.
