The Truth About Dogs: The Ancestry, Social Conventions, Mental Habits and Moral Fibre of Canis familiaris
The Truth About Dogs: The Ancestry, Social Conventions, Mental Habits and Moral Fibre of Canis familiaris
by Stephen Budiansky
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars A real eye opener, 25 April 2006
A wonderfully easy and entertaining read but likely to burst your bubble or enrage you if you are an advocate of dog "pop psychology" and have an over pampered pet. Interesting coverage of how dogs have managed to attain their privileged place in human society. Includes some enlightening ideas on how to manage your dog and some useful follow up references. Bought for me by my son to read (to our dog?) on holiday and a refreshing change from my usual rather heavy reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very readable history of the search for the good life, 22 Jun. 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Grayling provides what must be the most enjoyable journey through the history of the search for the good life that is in print today. Always adopting a strong humanist slant (and he puts his cards on the table in the introduction) he charts the struggle between "free will" and submission to divine power across the centuries. In his closing chapters he endeavours to make an overwhelmingly strong case for the human life in a human world, humanly lived and in my opinion he succeeds.


Linux System Administration (Craig Hunt Linux Library)

5.0 out of 5 stars An exceptional book, comprehensive and readable, 22 Feb. 2002
This book is an excellent resource for linux administrators who need logically presented "real world" support, it sits on my desk, not my bookshelf. Covers most "core" aspects of linux admin but for full coverage of apache, mail and DNS you will need to buy other books in the Craig Hunt series.
