The Other End of the Leash: Why We Do What We Do Around Dogs by Patricia B. McConnell

The Other End of the Leash shares a revolutionary, new perspective on our relationship with dogs, focusing on our behavior in comparison with that of dogs.

An applied animal behaviorist and dog trainer with more than twenty years experience, Dr. Patricia McConnell looks at humans as just another interesting species, and muses about why we behave the way we do around our dogs, how dogs might interpret our behavior, and how to interact with our dogs in ways that bring out the best in our four-legged friends. After all, although humans and dogs share a remarkable relationship that is unique in the animal world, we are still two entirely different species, each shaped by our individual evolutionary heritage. Quite simply, humans are primates and dogs are canids (like wolves, coyotes, and foxes). Since we each speak a different native tongue, a lot gets lost in the translation. The Other End of the Leash demonstrates how even the slightest changes in your voice and the way you stand can help your dog understand what you want. Once you start to think about your own behavior from the perspective of your dog, you’ll understand why much of what appears to be doggy-disobedience is simply a case of miscommunication. Inside you will learn • How to use your voice so that your dog is more likely to do what you ask. • Why “getting dominance” over your dog is a bad idea. • Why “rough and tumble primate play” can lead to trouble–and how to play with your dog in ways that are fun and keep him out of trouble. • How dogs and humans share personality types–and why most dogs want to live with benevolent leaders rather than “alphawannabees!” In her own insightful, compelling style, Patricia McConnell combines wonderful true stories about people and dogs with a new, accessible scientific perspective on how they should behave around each other. This is a book that strives to help you make the most of life with your dog, and to prevent problems that might arise in that most rewarding of relationships. From the Hardcover edition.

Ships listed in the new edition range from the greatest names in the cruise business such as Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 and the Queen Victoria, to the multitude of unglamorous workhorses of the seas—tankers, container ships, and cargo vessels owned by companies across the globe. The new edition is fully revised, with entries organized by shipping company with a listing of each ship owned by the company giving details of company colors, national flag, year built, tonnage, dimensions, speed, engines, number of passengers, type and former names, supplemented with a new photographic section of around 200 new photographs.

Ferries and Pleasure Steamers: A Colour Portfolio by David L. Williams , Richard de Kerbrach

Being an island nation, the United Kingdom has an extensive network of regular ferry services employing a wide spectrum of craft types and sizes. From large short-sea ferries maintaining open sea route links to continental Europe and Ireland, to numerous inter-island ferries providing all-year-round access to and between offshore communities, these vessels are an intrinsic Being an island nation, the United Kingdom has an extensive network of regular ferry services employing a wide spectrum of craft types and sizes. From large short-sea ferries maintaining open sea route links to continental Europe and Ireland, to numerous inter-island ferries providing all-year-round access to and between offshore communities, these vessels are an intrinsic part of our maritime history. In the sheltered waters of the coasts and river estuaries, ferries provide the means to reach inaccessible locations, avoiding long, circuitous road routes, while closer to the major cities they operate rapid and frequent schedules for commuter traffic. In the summer months, many of these craft offer pleasure trips or mini-cruises but there are also dedicated ferry-type excursion vessels working the coasts and rivers as well as some of the inland lakes. This excellent new book concentrates on a period of great transition in ferry shipping, from the 1950s to the early 1970s. It was a time that witnessed the emergence of roll-on roll-off and roll-through capabilities for accompanied vehicles, recognising the explosion in private car ownership as well as the growth of road haulage. It also saw the crucial development and introduction of novel new marine craft: hydrofoils, hovercraft and surface effect vehicles. With an arresting array of vibrant colour photographs, the majority of which have never seen before, Ferries and Pleasure Steamers: A Colour Portfolio provides a delightful snapshot of the ferry scene of almost half a century ago.

Call Me Bandicoot by William Pène du Bois

Or call him the Scheherezade of the Staten Island ferry. A head inclined in the direction of the water -- "Filthy, isn't it?" -- and he's into the story of How Ermine Bandicoot Filled New York Harbor With Cigarette Tobacco.

A head inclined in the direction of the water -- "Filthy, isn't it?" -- and he's into the story of How Ermine Bandicoot Filled New York Harbor With Cigarette Tobacco. Into it just enough that the listener pays the price of a hot dog and soda pop to hear it; and the price of an apple turnover a la mode to get from Ermine Bandicoot's stinginess to his butt collection; and several candy bars to reach his great scheme for the Statue of Liberty, the mammoth cigarette to stink up New York, promoting the anti-pollution and anti-smoking campaigns; and two postcard pictures of this phenomenon to put the tobacco into the water; and a dollar tip to top it off. Coming back the boy buttonholes a British traveler looking for the UN with the tale of Ermine Bandicoot and the Casa Nostril, a confraternity of big-nosed bigwigs; his business card reads ERMINE BANDICOOT. STORIES AND INVENTIONS. ANY SUBJECT MATTER. ENTERTAINMENT GUARANTEED. Followed ashore, he folds up . . . into Hermann Vanden Kroote, Jr., disaffected son of the cigarette mogul. The conclusion: "It's tough to be a kid and have principles, really tough to squeeze out a miserly existence. . . particularly if you happen to choose that oldest of noble professions, storytelling." Appropriately, fewer pictures and more story than in others (Lazy Tommy Pumpkinhead et al.) of this series and of course Herman/Ermine is more sinned against than sinning: his vulnerability ices a masterly performance. - Kirkus Review
