This new revised edition is a must have! Even if you own the previous edition the photos and examples along with the writing are worth it. Turid has a wonderful gift of making everything so easy to understand and relate to...(she has made) an enormous contribution to mankind in our ever-increasing knowledge of man s best friend our dogs. --Pamela Dennison, author of Complete Idiots Guide to Positive Dog Training and Bringing Light to Shadow. A Dog Trainer's Diary
Invaluable! The insightful observations of Turid Rugaas can help all of us have a deeper and more meaningful relationship with our dogs. This beautifully illustrated book belongs in the home of dog lovers everywhere. --Patricia B. McConnell, Ph.D. author, The Other End of the Leash, Cautious Canine, Feeling Outnumbered and more
I personally owe Turid a great debt because her work validated my observations that dogs are trying very hard to talk to us. This book was my guide and added amazing volume to my knowledge base. Her book provided the confidence to continue watching and interpreting. What a lovely gift! --Brenda Aloff author of Aggression In Dogs and Canine Body Language, A Photographic Guide
About the Author
Turid Rugaas has been involved with dogs as long as she can remember. From her own classes held at Hagan Hundeskole, her beautiful farm in the fjords of Norway, to her world-wide seminars, Turid is helping dogs by helping their owners see and understand the signals they give us.

Each of these books would be ONE chapter in a book (if they were all together in one book).
That being said.... I LOVE the info in this book and wish I learned this years ago!
It's helping me keep my puppy calm as I train him in stores and on outings in general.
There are 11 calming signals that the author mentions and then they list examples. That's the sum-up of the book.
While it's a really brief book... the information is HIGHLY valuable and works great!
I would recommend that you borrow this book from your library or a friend rather than paying so much for this book.
Good luck and happy calming :)
Furthermore, I bought a few other canine behavior/communication books that provide more in-depth information. They are more academic in nature, but worth looking into. The following books are not listed in any order of importance.
1. In Defence of Dogs by John W. S. Bradshaw
2. Decoding Your Dog: Explaining Common Dog... by American College of Veterinary Behaviorists
3. How Dogs Love Us: A Neuroscientist and His Dog... by Gregory Berns
My only complain is for publisher, not the author. I wish they made more efforts making the book attractive to readers, especially the photos which are small and not very high quality.
A definite read for any dog person. Also for anyone who encounters dogs, and who doesn't?
Best money spent, and now I am on the barking book, also very good!
