I did enjoy this book quite a bit - particularly the chapters on dogs, cats, wildlife and zoos. But, overall, I found it to be a bit repetitive of the information previously presented in _Animals in Translation_. It wasn't bad, or boring, just a little less "meaty" than _Animals in Translation_. I really liked how she went further into what makes a wolf pack, and the domestication of the wolf. All in all, it was quite interesting.
