The Secret History Of Kindness
Learning From How Dogs LearnBook - 2015
To learn more, Pierson met with a host of fascinating animal behaviorists, going behind the scenes to witness the relationships between trainers and animals at the National Zoo in Washington, DC, and to the in-depth seminars at a Clicker Expo where all the dogs but hers seemed to be learning new tricks. The often startling story of what became of a pathbreaking scientist's work is interwoven with a more personal tale of how to understand the foreign species with whom we are privileged to live.
Pierson draws surprising connections in her exploration of how kindness works to motivate all animals, including the human one.
