Man Meets Dog, Paperback
4 out of 5 (2 ratings)


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!).

Review by

A must for all dog lovers... particularly those who know a chow. I admit, I have a strong affinity for this book in large part due to the fact that I found my soul mate dog (a chow mix who looks just like the dogs in the illustrations) about a week after finding the book. Humans and dogs evolved in tandem- where would we be without them?

Review by

Konrad Lorenz thinks that a well-balanced person will enjoy the company of both dogs and cats.I love my two cats!I love my two dogs!William Blake preferred cats to dogs, because cats are more discriminating and less prodigal in their displays of affection.
