Interesting but a bit thin,

This review is from: The Covenant of the Wild: Why Animals Chose Domestication (Paperback)
Budiansky makes some very interesting points about domestication, how evolutionary adaptation led pets to choose to be domesticated rather than us choosing them, etc. But too much of this book is taken up with diatribes against animal rights groups. Sure, he has some good points, but he uses up more than half the book making them and I felt cheated - I wanted to read about biology and evolution and not stupid political movements.
