Reviews

"Alexandra Horowitz's masterful and witty biography of two intertwined species fully captures the profundity, joy, and absurdity of our bonds with our closest animal companions. Our Dogs, Ourselves is a treat for dog lovers, but also essential reading for anyone interested in our relationship with nature, and what that says about us." -Ed Yong, bestselling author of I Contain Multitudes "In Our Dogs, Ourselves, Alexandra Horowitz has achieved the rare and admirable feat of combining hard scientific information with a storyteller's gift of detail and depth, a gossip columnist's gift for eavesdropping, and a philosopher's work of making us face the difficult aspects of our love of dogs-all the time re-enforcing the rightness of our choice to love them." -Mary Gordon "If you love dogs, and even talk to them, you're going to rejoice at this entertaining and enlightening book." -BookPage
