People have a great curiosity and many misunderstandings about how dogs think, act and perceive the world. They are also curious about the social and emotional lives of dogs. They wonder whether dogs dream, if they recognise themselves in the mirror or understand what they're seeing on television or if they are more intelligent than cats. Stanley Coren brings decades of scientific research on dogs to bear in his unprecedented foray into the inner lives of our canine companions, dispelling many common myths in the process. In a conversational format with illustrations, Coren answers approximately 75 questions often asked of him during his nearly fifty-year career as a dog researcher, combining the authority of an expert with the engaging delivery of a guest at a cocktail party.
Stanley Coren is a professor emeritus of psychology at the University of British Columbia. He is the author of The Intelligence of Dogs and other best-sellers about dogs. Author website: www.stanleycoren.com
