Stephen Budiansky: "The Truth About Dogs" (Viking)
We all know that dogs are man's best friend... or do we? Would you put up with a human friend who chewed your shoes or kept you up all night with whining and barking? In his new book, science journalist and dog lover Stephen Budiansky presents the evolutionary and genetic explanations for why dogs are the way they are -- and why so many humans have invited these strange creatures into their homes.
