This is one of those books that stick with you. There are those books that are great reads, but after they're finished they sort of flow out of your brain. Then there are those that you find yourself thinking about while you're lying in bed in the morning, or your putzing around the house, or driving in the car. You have become AWARE. This is one of those books. You've become aware and consider things just a bit differently. I won this in a GoodReads Review Giveaway, and I truly enjoyed it. It doesn't glamorize the vet's profession, but it does spotlight human empathy. Something I've found that seems to be in short supply. And it's a reflection of a real Life; never as clean, organized, or as crap-free as you'd like it to be. One of the fun things about this book is that it hasn't been "dressed up". As you read you can hear Dr. Pol's voice clearly speaking to you. This is a unique way of speaking if you've ever seen his show on Nat Geo Wild. Or if you read this book and then watch the series, you will find it very familiar. His personality clear comes through. ( )

As enjoyable as the TV series. Fills in a lot of background of Dr. Pol and the family. ( )
