So the presidential election (and all the associated campaigning) is finally over. And, if you’re anything like me, the sudden evaporation of the media circus that surrounds the election has left you with a bit of space to direct your attention to the many subjects that you truly consider worthwhile.
It is, in other words, the perfect time to start a new book.
And, while I’m probably biased, I’ll suggest that you could do worse than choosing Dogs, Dog Food, and Dogma for your next reading project.
As I explained recently, I think it’s precisely the kind of book that readers of this blog will relish. It contains vital, under-appreciated information about how to care for your dog; it has been shaped by many of the leading names at the intersection of nutritional science and pet health; and, if I do say so myself, it’s an enjoyable read.
But don’t take my word for it.
Poke around the Internet and you’ll see that the book’s post-release reviews have been universally positive. For a particularly thoughtful recent example, check out the most recent blog post by Dr. Patricia McConnell, the New York Times bestselling author of The Other End of the Leash.
The book also seems to be resonating with its readers. It is already an Amazon bestseller and is currently the #1 New Release in the pet health and nutrition category. And, thus far, all of its reader reviews have rated it 5/5 stars.
Lastly, at the risk of revealing a bit about my own political preferences, you might even say that books are now as important as ever. Whatever your thoughts on our new President-Elect, it’s beyond dispute that he’s not a particular fan of either reading or science (or dogs, for that matter). And, with anti-intellectualism having reached the highest echelons of our government, it’s probably a particularly good time to double down on your own intellectual pursuits.
What better way than with a rigorous science book that might just save your best friend’s life?
