Just briefly--I'm pleased to provide a link to clicker training expert Karen Pryor's comments on my book. Here's an excerpt: "Fascinating . . . A ten-year labor of stunning scholarship across many disciplines."
Pryor's pioneering work has helped bring positive reinforcement methods to the worlds of companion animals and zoos--and to us too! Her best-selling book Don't Shoot the Dog is as much about people as about animals, and I cite it a number of times in The Science of Consequences. I really enjoyed her most recent book too, Reaching the Animal Mind.
