In this wonderful book, the famous scientist and best-selling author, Konrad Lorenz, 'the man who talked with animals', enlightens and entertains us with his illustrated account of the unique relationship between humans and their pets. Displaying Lorenz's customary humanity and expert knowledge of animals, Man Meets Dog is also a deeply personal and entertaining account of his relationships with his own four-legged friends. With charming sketches on almost every page, Man Meets Dog offers a delightful insight into animal and human thinking and feeling. An essential companion for all lovers of dogs (and cats!).

I first read this book in the 60s and have reread it twice since. Lorenz mixes anthropology with personal experience. Dog and cat owners will recognize and laugh at the animal (human and otherwise)behaviors described. Like Desmond Morris (The Naked Ape), Lorenz' style is comprehensible for most readers over 12 without dumbing down the subject.
