There are some good passages in this book, but the many personal asides feel like a lot of padding. Maybe that works well in the newspaper articles Jon Franklin once wrote, but it didn't work for me. Tellingly, the endorsements on the back of this book include no biologists or anthropologists. Far better to track down a copy of James Serpell's "The Domestic Dog: Its Evolution, Behaviour and Interactions with People" - which Franklin read in manuscript form while writing this book.
