Animal Book Club April 2021

The April choice for the Companion Animal Psychology Book Club. 

Companion Animal Psychology Book Club April 2021

By Zazie Todd, PhD

This month, the Animal Book Club is reading Biology of Dogs: From Gonads Through Guts To Ganglia by Tim Lewis PhD.

From the book's description:

"You may be thinking, How can I take this book seriously when the subtitle starts with the word “gonads”? If so, you have probably not met Tim Lewis yet. Take it from Tim: Gonads are what biology is all about. They are the mechanisms that allow living beings to reproduce – and without reproduction, there’s no life. Of course, there is way more to it than just reproduction.

Biology of Dogs takes you on a series of tours through all the major biological systems – reproductive, nervous, musculoskeletal, digestive and more. Tim leads these tours in a fun and irreverent manner, offering insights that will enhance your dog-human relationships so much that you will abandon all of your human friends to spend more time with your dog! And for those of you who slept through your biology class in school, you will learn a lot of useful information about human biology as well."

This and all of the book choices (and more!) are available in my Amazon store: https://www.amazon.com/shop/animalbookclub
