From the back cover:
“Naturalist, scientist, and writer Karen Pryor has touched thousands of lives – both animal and human – through teaching people how to, as she puts it, ‘create a climate of security in which it is safe to learn new things.’ Now the author of Don’t Shoot the Dog and Reaching the Animal Mind offers anyone invested in animal behavior an insider’s view of her world. You’ll ‘hear’ the conversations Karen has with the animals she trains; you’ll celebrate their mutual break-throughs. Karen presents science with a personal touch and with humor – whether it’s laughing at her responses to her teakettle or investigating why sheep don’t herd themselves. On My Mind gives a glimpse into the mind of an early dolphin trainer who revolutionized the way we think about and communicate with animals – and each other.”
