After years of reading a vast array of dog books, this one was still full of surprises. It successfully challenges many of the damanging and false misconceptions about dogs; from pack theories to dominance, and where people went wrong with these beliefs, how they came to be, and how they are totally against modern research and knowledge. It also covers many other topics, and really does help in the understanding of dogs.
One by one, Semyonova picks apart many myths and backs up most of her claims with credible sources. The book is easy to read and you can jump from one myth to another if you wish.
I've only given 4 stars because the author seems to have some issue with staffordshire / terrier / pit bull breeds that proved to be largely unfounded. I approached these topics with a totally open mind, researching her sources and references. In this case, Semyonova has based these assumptions in a very poor source; largely a website that has been proven to falsify statistics and give out false information, and is run by one woman who is not qualified or experienced with dogs in any way. This is a great shame, as a I was able to find vast amounts of sources that proved the opposite of her claims.
My only mild reserve is that I got the impression that the writer thought of the title first and then had to repeat a few things to make up the "100". However, any repetition served to emphasise the key thoughts and beliefs. Well worth the read.
