"I’ve finished Made for Each Other, and do indeed recommend it for people who are interested in animal behavior in general, and specifically the biology behind the relationship we have with domestic animals....It's a great read."
Wayne Pacelle, President and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States
"Made for Each Other was, for me, the most stimulating book of the year."

The book is a fun, fast read, too, studded with gems of facts: the Egyptians seem to have tamed hyenas and giraffes. Plants recognize other plants that are related to them, and refrain from competing with relatives. When foxes are bred for docility of temperament, within a few generations their markings begin to look like those of border collies. Wow!
I learned a great deal from this book, and much of it was very good news indeed: that our very biochemistry weds us, and our happiness, to the rest of animate creation.

We found it very easy to read, enlightening, scholarly but not pedantic, believable but not full of excessive hype. We wish that more scientific theory and data were so readable. It's way better than those academic articles and scientific descriptions we usually plod through to find out what we want to know. Those articles reward us, but we wish they didn't make obfuscating the goal.
When my wife worked on Wall St, everyone tried to make financial data seem obtuse too. They like those smoke and mirror effects. It hides the very scant amount of clothes the emperor is wearing.
We love how Meg Olmert de-mystifies the mysterious!
