The book is important to those interested in the history of behavioral sciences since the discoveries are applicable to many species (including humans) and not just the dog.
This book will always be especially valuable to dog breeders and trainers; its last chapters summmarize in very clear terms the particular phases in early development and experiences the dog needs to be adequately socialized. The reader can refer back to earlier chapters to get more information on how the experiments were conducted and the distribution of results. It answers questions on proper age that puppies can be separated from their mothers, what experiences are important to provide at what age, etc.
The experimental procedure in this book, though sometimes slightly troubling for me, as a dog lover, is truly valuable. I don't believe there is any other text that addresses 'nature vs nurture' in dogs better. It really provides food for thought.
If you're a dog trainer or a dog breeder, I really highly recommend this book.
