From the Back Cover
Now you can force a dog to do something before he's accepted you--or what you want him to do--and this dog will grudge you, fight you, be a resentful worker. Or you can read him, see when he's ready to take the lesson, get done what you want, and have a happy worker.

What I was really looking for was a book with guidelines or recommendations on dog training. I knew a little bit and had some older books, but I was looking for something a bit better organized.
This book had a very engaging style and is enjoyable to read, but it's more like "memoirs of a dog trainer". It is definitely not the book to read if you are looking for a dog training manual. It's a fun book, however, if you want to read about a dog trainer's experiences.
I was troubled about my review because it really breaks down as follows:
5 stars if you want a fun, chatty book about a dog trainer's experiences
2 stars if you are looking for a dog training manual--because you have to sift through all the experiences to see what he did or didn't do as far as training is concerned.
Hope this helps others make the decision. It's not a bad book if you buy it for the right reason.
It is a partnership that bill writes about and he tells us how we can be more helpful to our gun dog, which enables the dog to do his job better. In his later years, Bill's kindness for dogs was truly developed.
I had the great good fortune to be interviewed by Bill in 1995, and I have included a chapter in my forthcoming book, about that visit. Here's a short part: "He walked through the open garage and here he was, coming in the back way. He walked with a cane and was quite stiff in the legs, from arthritis...I got us settled in two comfortable chairs...We talked a while; he was here to interview me about my book on Griffons, which would come out a year later. He asked a lot of questions. Finally, he said he had never interviewed a woman before and he didn't know how to describe me! So I said, "...attractive, medium build, blue-eyed brunette." And that's what he put in the article for Field & Stream!
As I've said about Bill in my forthcoming book, "He was a bit of a gruff, but at the same time a softy. His way of training dogs was a kind way; he didn't go for "force fetching" and stuff like that. His was a light, loving hand. I'm forever grateful and glad I got o meet him."
