5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book!
This is a fantastic book written in a friendly manner as though the author is engaged in conversation with the reader. Jeffrey Masson adopts three dogs to give himself "a pack" and then examines the emotional behaviour of these animals in particular, and researches and recounts tales of others. This is a fascinating and heart-warming book written by a man with a...

3.0 out of 5 stars Moving but with some assumptions
This is a truly moving account of the emotional world of dogs.Masson has an inate understanding of what's going on inside the dog's mind. Some of the accounts brought me to tears, especially the dog who brought food to another dog stuck down a mine shaft.From his writings on Freud though, I know that Masson has a tendency to make assumptions, and misunderstand the...

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book!, 2 Jan 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Dogs Never Lie About Love: Why Your Dog Will Always Love You More Than Anyone Else: Reflections on the Emotional World of Dogs (Paperback)
This is a fantastic book written in a friendly manner as though the author is engaged in conversation with the reader. Jeffrey Masson adopts three dogs to give himself "a pack" and then examines the emotional behaviour of these animals in particular, and researches and recounts tales of others. This is a fascinating and heart-warming book written by a man with a real sympathy with dogs and a true love of the canine species. A good read leaving the reader with plenty of food-for-thought.

3.0 out of 5 stars Moving but with some assumptions, 28 Sep 2009
This review is from: Dogs Never Lie About Love: Why Your Dog Will Always Love You More Than Anyone Else: Reflections on the Emotional World of Dogs (Paperback)
This is a truly moving account of the emotional world of dogs.Masson has an inate understanding of what's going on inside the dog's mind. Some of the accounts brought me to tears, especially the dog who brought food to another dog stuck down a mine shaft.From his writings on Freud though, I know that Masson has a tendency to make assumptions, and misunderstand the situation, so I was cautious reading this book. Sure enough, his observations came from his own small group of four dogs,[a very limited sample compared to those who have worked with and trained hundreds of dogs].Still worth reading though, and I think overall he does kind of get what is going on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Touching yet uplifting., 11 May 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Dogs Never Lie About Love: Why Your Dog Will Always Love You More Than Anyone Else: Reflections on the Emotional World of Dogs (Paperback)
For dog-owners, this book tells you what you already knew. Namely, how very special our canine companions are. There are stories which will upset readers but, nevertheless, the message to the book has to be one of joy. Dogs are wonderful creatures and we could perhaps learn a little from their faithful nature.

This review is from: Dogs Never Lie About Love: Why Your Dog Will Always Love You More Than Anyone Else: Reflections on the Emotional World of Dogs (Paperback)
This was the first book I read when I was trying to understand if my love of dogs was something that other people felt too. Here I discovered that I am not alone and that my hunches about the special qualities that dogs undoubtedly have are appreciated by many others. And here is the evidence (which I didn't really need) to show us why dogs are so loveable. Nobody who loves dogs could fail to love this book, too!

This review is from: Dogs Never Lie About Love: Why Your Dog Will Always Love You More Than Anyone Else: Reflections on the Emotional World of Dogs (Paperback)
Great book full of 'true isms' about your own dog.. If you own a dog, you will be able to identify with loads of the descriptions of the behaviour of pet dogs. I really enjoyed the read, and made me love my dogs all the more !

This book found hard to get into. In fact still trying. Keep trying but not really for me. Although I guess others will differ to agree.

This review is from: Dogs Never Lie About Love: Why Your Dog Will Always Love You More Than Anyone Else: Reflections on the Emotional World of Dogs (Paperback)
This is a very good book, in my opinion. It writes what we already thought, dogs and other animals are highly intelligent. In my experience rats too.

This review is from: Dogs Never Lie About Love: Why Your Dog Will Always Love You More Than Anyone Else: Reflections on the Emotional World of Dogs (Paperback)
I bought this book as a Christmas gift for a friend so have not totally read it. I did however have a look through and read some parts of it to get a feel for the book to make sure I had made the right choice to give my friend.

It seemed to be a book full of great, useful and amazing information into the dog's mind and how they need to be treated to live in harmony with us humans.

When you have a dog, or any pet for that matter, all knowledge is useful and never wasted. We can never learn too much about these beautiful faithful animals.
