Reviews

"Spellbinding...This book will stay with you long after you've finished it." --Forbes, "The 10 Best Popular Science Books of 2016" "A delight for dog lovers and anyone who enjoys the smell of breakfast, crayons, rich earth, fresh-baked cookies, and yes, even dogs. . . . Being a Dog is one great book to sniff out." --Daily Citizen "Becoming more doglike, not surprisingly, can make anyone's life a little more vivid." --Boston Globe "I have fresh appreciation for [my dog's] sniffing behavior." --The New York Times "Horowitz...explores the way dogs experience the world in this rich and absorbing examination of noses and scents...Both dog lovers and pop science readers will want to stick their noses in this book, and they may find themselves using their noses, like Horowitz and dogs everywhere, to experience the world more vividly." --Publishers Weekly "Fascinating...Horowitz combines the expertise of a scientist with an easy, lively writing style." --The New York Times Book Review "Like a Mary Roach but with a solid scientific background to her credit, Horowitz is a skilled investigative reporter who takes readers into unfamiliar worlds, shares her experiences there, asks probing questions, and makes those worlds come alive. Dog owners curious about the lives of their pets will savor this book, but it deserves a wider audience than just animal lovers." --Kirkus Reviews "An incredible journey into the olfactory world of man's best friend." --O Magazine "I'm not entirely certain whether Alexandra Horowitz's Being a Dog has made me want to buy a dog or morph into one--but I do know that it was magical. Horowitz has crafted an utterly engrossing, witty, finely-observed narrative that will make you look at the power of the nose in a wholly new way." --Maria Konnikova, author of The Confidence Game and Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes
