Jennifer Berman's wickedly funny book compares the male of the human species with the canine to come up with some hilarious disparities. Berman's delightful four-color cartoons and witty quips show why some women may prefer the four-legged animal to the two-legged.When it was originally published by Pocket Books in 1993, Jennifer Berman's Why Dogs Are Better Than Men sold more than 80,000 copies. It was also critically praised. "Why Dogs are Better Than Men is charming, funny, and apt," said Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, author of the New York Times best-seller The Hidden Life of Dogs. "The dogs are portrayed with respect, which is important."Today, Jennifer's humor is just as fresh. Women are still trying to gently train the men in their lives, hoping to bring them up to the canine gold standard. Anyone who loves her pooch will find this book irresistible since it cleverly highlights just how devoted the owner-pet connection can be.
