Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Williams' premise is simple: if it is true that animals can sense emotions--fear, for example--in humans, then why isn't the inverse also possible? She calls this concept "intuitive communication," describing it as the innate ability humans have to telepathically communicate with animals and other sentient beings throughout nature, including trees and insects. Realizing that such a notion will invariably be met with extreme skepticism, Williams presents a trove of anecdotal evidence collected from people throughout the world who have gained genuine insight into animal behavior. Indeed, it is this acceptance of initial aversion to her hypothesis that is Williams' greatest strength, for she takes pains to frankly and methodically present compelling evidence to support her claims. Working with everything from cats and dogs to bears and snakes, Williams explains how such communication works and outlines basic techniques. A passionate advocate for an unorthodox but potentially significant field of inquiry, Williams cogently demonstrates how intuitive communication may greatly affect environmental awareness.

Format: Paperback
Probably most folks who will look at this book are already believers in animal communication but even for those like me who are, there is an abundance of profound and amazingly touching anecdotes in it.

My wife and I have called on Marta for help with our cats on several occasions with great success. As a direct result of reading her previous book we can now often communicate directly with them ourselves. This new book is truely a gem and whichever book you read first, you will likely end up wanting to get the other as well! They are easy to read and understand, and make great gifts! Even children who are too young to be able to read on them on their own can learn to communicate with animals; actually learn more easily than adults.

Even if you don't have a live-in companion, animals are all around us and they love it when you make deeper contact with them. If you love animals, this book is a must have!

Format: Paperback
Marta shares many interesting stories in this followup to Learning Their Language. Understanding your pet is so important, and the more we can learn about and develop positive interactive communication signals the stronger will be the bond we share with our furry family members. Being "in-touch" with

your pet is an important part of enhancing the human-animal bond, and a critical part of a successful holistic health care program. Those clients whose patients I am proud to treat who are most in-tune with their pets have the greatest successes with both preventing and treating diseases.

Format: Paperback
In this book Marta Williams carries forward the concepts described in Learning Their Language. She gives many case histories, examples of how intuitive communication has been critical in the lives of the animals whose cases are described. This is both fascinating and moving. The implications are unnerving, but worth incorporating into your world view.

15 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Shirley Priscilla Johnson TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 5, 2005
Format: Paperback
Author Marti Williams takes us on a wonderful journey as she shares countless stories of animals interacting with humans. In this book she tells of communication between many animals and humans. In these communications the animals; dogs, cats, horses, etc. share their feelings, likes, dislikes, worries and such with the person they are communicating with. Interesting! She also gives accounts where lost pets are found, and emotional problems are solved.

I am an animal lover so this book definitely touched a soft spot in my heart. I am not sure that I fully agree with how she communicates with the animals and nature, but I definitely know that everything living share a common bond. If what she is doing helps even one animal to have a better life, I say Amen and thank you to her! This certainly is a very well written book with some wonderful stories and information that I feel will help and touch many hearts along the way. Animal lovers and pet owners will appreciate this read and find it very beneficial.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By gina hayes on January 29, 2009
Format: Paperback
I recommend this book to all animal professionals as well as the more common, dog owner. I think using this form of natural communication assists greatly in training animals with traditional methods. I also believe the more years a professional uses traditional methods, the harder it is for them to go back and use non traditional communication methods - but ultimately, an incredible tool.
Great book and well worth reading!

Great book based on William's first book Learning Their Language. This book is filled with stories of people and their animals and the communication between them. It reminded me of many times with my own animal family. Read it.

This book was so interesting that I read it in two sessions. Parts were funny and parts were sad, but it was all well done and believable. Makes me want to sit right down and learn how to do this myself. Money well spent.
