We enjoyed reading a review of Reaching the Animal Mind (Karen Pryor's new book) from Diana Geurrero, an expert trainer based in Southern California who has been featured on the Today Show and NPR, among other media outlets. Here's an excerpt from Diana's review:
Reaching the Animal Mind: Clicker Training and What it Teaches Us About All Animals is destined to be another animal training classic. As with some of her past works (Don't Shoot the Dog, Lads Before the Wind, On Behavior) this book takes complex training topics and chisels them down into easily understood concepts woven into a tapestry of storytelling that is both engaging and compelling.
Although some people might expect this to be an "animal training book" it is not a "how-to manual." This work is easily read and explains principles behind clicker training and behavior modification concepts and illustrates them through engaging stories."

Reaching the Animal Mind
This is a fabulous book! I'm still in the process of reading and digesting, but even just a few chapters in I've already learned so much. Love the videos available on the site too. I'm moving this book to the top of my recommended reading list!
