Fantastic book. Easy to read, fascinating content. A large portion of the book (maybe a tad too much) is dedicated to telling the story of the lead-up to the actual experiments, however, it is interesting to read about hurdles, preconceptions, funding issues and the like.

Fascinating book that debunks the idea of the dog owner establishing pack leadership as successful dog-human relationship. A must read for dog owners and dog lovers.
