Praise, Reviews, & News

I’m touring and doing readings in Cape Cod, Boston, and Portland, Maine from July 22 through 28. Summer, dogs, sand, great food! What’s not to like? Here’s the schedule.

What the Dog Knows is no. 2 on the NYT Animal Books Best Sellers list, and no. 11 on the NYT Science Books Best Sellers list for May. It’s back on the nonfiction trade paperback NYT best sellers list as well!

It’s now also at no. 5 on Indie Bound’s Nonfiction Paperback Bestseller List (which tracks national independent book store sales).

Long Listed for PEN/E.O. Wilson Literary Science Writing Award 2014.

“If you have ever loved a dog, you must read this book. I loved it!” —Robert Crais, author of Suspect and Elvis Cole/Joe Pike mystery series.
