Editorial Reviews

About the Author

John-Andrew Sandbrook is a senior mathematical sciences and computer science major at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. As a lifelong dog owner, he's seen his fair share of food-sneaking, revenge-taking, and chair-warming.

Dara Flynn, MS received her Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering and her Master of Science in Materials Science from Worcester Polytechnic Institute. The proud owner of a physics-ally inclined Doberman, Flynn has survived many of these scenarios on the wrong side of a clever canine. From several strategic puking incidents and a laughable attempt at a sled pull to valiant conquests of ants and cowardly shivers at the smallest sign of thunder, Flynn observed and conducted countless dog-years of field experiments and lab trials before undertaking coauthorship of this book.

This is the funniest book I have read in two decades!!! If you own a dog, a dog owns you, or you live with/near/in the realm of a dog, you have got to read this book. The calculation of coefficients for places to pee had me laughing so hard I blew coffee out of my nose. Four PAWS UP for this book! and a note from my dogs...they both cheer and curse you mr sandbrook for iterating the secrets of the trade!!!! Bravo!

This book is brilliant on so many levels. It is fun and enjoyable to see the various dog action scenarios broken down into a collection of formulas and drawings. I particularly love the document management (CM protocol) used in the compilation of sections.
I think I may have a few issues with the maths. For example in RD11, the assertion that d=.57m is contrary to the standard value for dog eyeballs to TV screen ratio. I do give it up for the accuracy of the Canine perspective drawings.
No kidding this book is really very funny when you actually sit down and read it cover to cover. It is also funny to look at in an ad-hoc fashion as you will not miss the story line if you read this in short bursts.
Thanks for proving that a degree is physics can be of real value to the world.

I bought this as a gag for a physics-minded friend and we have found it incredibly enjoyable -- and relatively accurate. I view my dog in an entirely new complex realm and recognize her unique ability to maximize both her fun and the mess she creates. Its worth the few bucks for a long intellectual laugh on a slow day of research.
