In a follow-up to THE HIDDEN LIFE OF DOGS, anthropologist and cultural observer Elizabeth Marshall Thomas again studies the interactions of a house full of dogs. Any dog-lover will appreciate Thomas's insights and keen observations into the world of dog behavior and personality, while the casual listener gets a fresh look at a fascinating field of study. Those who do not appreciate the canine world may find her perceptions a little wacky. Thomas's reading starts off stiff and choppy, but as she warms to her material, her passion for her subjects shines, making her anthropomorphic study seem logical and wholly believable. The abridgment, while expert and seamless, makes listeners long for more details as Thomas's four-legged companions offer insights into listeners’ own pets.
