Staff Review: The Genius of Dogs
The Genius of Dogs
Brian Hare & Vanessa Woods
The evolution of man’s best friend is not as straightforward as you might think. This fascinating title, The Genius of Dogs, delves into the inner workings of not only a dog’s mind and their intelligence, but also touches upon human and ape evolution.
Through a series of experiments, Brian Hare develops a clear picture of our connection with our favourite animal companions, a relationship that has evolved over the last 40,000 years. Not only that, but this book will also tell you how to use this newfound knowledge to build a better relationship with your dog.
The Genius of Dogs will interest readers from all different educational backgrounds and will delight not only the cognitive scientist, but also those interested in the subject or approaching it for the first time. A must read for any animal lover!
