Horowitz, expanding on her success in parsing the human-dog relationships in her "Inside of a Dog," zeroes in on the canine sense of smell. You will learn how the unique and *powerful* physiology of the dog's nose operates (fully 7% of dog DNA going towards olfaction!), and hear fascinating tales of the training and work of detection dogs of all stripes. Most fetching is the author's discussions of how we as humans can use our nose even more emphatically - expect to experience the world with different senses after reading.
