Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Investigative reporter Woestendiek weaves together bizarrely interesting tales of rich pet owners, Korean and American scientists, ethics, and a petting zoo full of loved animals (including dogs, cats, and a Brahman bull). As readers follow the journeys of pet owners who sought to replace their companion animals with a new but genetically identical generation, they will meet a former beauty queen and kidnapping suspect who defied court custody orders and took her children around the world in order to keep them, and a pair of Korean scientists who finally succeeded in producing the first cloned dogs alongside serious allegations of scientific fraud. Woestendiek turns complex genetics into an interesting study for the layperson in a book that provides scientific background, technology update, and shock value all in one. From explaining the X-inactivation that foiled the results of the first cloned cat to relaying the story of Booger, a stray dog that learned to provide service to his injured mistress, Woestendiek educates as he entertains. Though this effort will particularly interest readers on both sides of the cloning issue, Woestendiek's conversational prose, added to the sometimes astonishing circumstances he uncovered, will entertain a wide audience.

Pulitzer prize-winning investigative reporter John Woestendiek is the author of “DOG, INC,” a non-fiction book about the cloning of dogs, and produces the popular dog website “ohmidog!”

He’s a 35-year veteran of newspapers, most recently the Baltimore Sun, which he left in 2008 to research and write “DOG, INC. The Uncanny Inside Story of Cloning Man’s Best Friend” (Penguin- Avery, 2011), a book that looks at the new, strange and questionable practice of cloning dogs for profit, and asks the question, with man’s best friend being cloned, can the cloning of man be far behind?

Woestendiek began his newspaper career at the Arizona Daily Star, and also has worked at the Lexington Herald-Leader, Charlotte Observer, and Philadelphia Inquirer, where he won a Pulitzer Prize in 1987 for his reporting on prisons, which included a series of articles that helped overturn the murder conviction of an innocent 18-year-old man sentenced to life in prison.

In addition to writing about prisons and mental institutions, Woestendiek reported on troubled, poor and otherwise at risk children, served as a national correspondent covering the western states, as roaming national columnist and as a humor columnist.

A graduate of the University of North Carolina, he was inducted into the North Carolina Journalism Hall of Fame in 2003. He is a former Knight Fellow at Stanford University, and served as the T. Anthony Pollner Distinguished Visiting Professor at the University of Montana School of Journalism in 2007.

Woestendiek, 57, and his shelter dog, Ace, moved out of their house in

Baltimore in 2010 and began a one-year journey across America, which included retracing the path John Steinbeck took for his book, Travels With Charley. Their adventures are recorded in the blog “Travels with Ace” and the subject of what he hopes to be his next book.

With their travels, mostly, complete, John and Ace have settled for the time being in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, the town of his birth.
