In Defense of Dogs- John Bradshaw

I saw this book review linked from a comment on one of Susan Garrett's blog posts defending pure positive reinforcement. The book looks quite interesting based on this quote from the review:

Quote:
Bradshaw is not interested in canine hearsay. He does not peddle opinions. His style is tolerant, clear and benign and he is interested only in what science can support. His book is a revelation – a major rethink about the way we understand our dogs, an overturning of what one might call traditional dogma.
Interesting! I was wondering if any of you have read this book and cared to share your opinion? Thanks!

Hmmm... perhaps I jumped the gun here. I thought it was released already. It seems to be available in the UK: In Defence of Dogs - John Bradshaw | Guardian bookshop


But I can't find a store in the US that lists it. Perhaps it isn't fully released yet, or at least not in the US.

I checked. I didn't see it on Amazon, B&N, or Borders.

HAHA! Sorry guys! I saw it linked at another blog, and then a big long review! I assumed it was out and available; never crossed my mind that it wouldn't be! LOL!
