Yin and Yang, if you like. Forces pulling in opposing directions but to achieve the same end: Revelation.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Simon Vance.

Please note: This is an analysis and key takeaways of the book and not the original book. Start Publishing Notes´ Summary, Analysis, and Review of Eric Barker´s Barking Up the Wrong Tree: The Surprising Science Behind Why Everything You Know About Success Is (Mostly) Wrong includes a summary of the book, review, analysis, and key takeaways, and detailed ´´About the Author´´ section. Preview: In Barking Up the Wrong Tree, Eric Barker examines the science behind success. In the introductory chapter, Barker explains that much of what we have been told about the qualities that lead to success is incorrect. Instead, we should look at successful people, examine their stories, and learn how to be more like them. Barker also adds that many success stories also contain warnings about what traps we should avoid since the qualities that lead to success can also be detrimental to human happiness. Barking Up the Wrong Tree is a continuation of Barker´s successful blog, where he examines research and interviews experts about what makes a successful life. The book is structured into six chapters, each with its own set of lessons for those looking to understand how to cultivate their own success. In the first chapter, Barker illustrates the contradictions behind success by examining the life paths of 81 high school valedictorians. After relatively good college careers, 90 percent of high school valedictorians worked in careers that were in the top 40 percent of the job tier. However, not a single valedictorian in the study went on to change the world. Barker says that we have been advised to play it safe and avert risk, but that this advice often leads to mediocrity. Instead, research shows that the traits that make students impressive in the classroom makes them less likely to be ´´home-run hitters´´ once they leave the classroom. 1. Language: English.

Years before he played J. Peterman on Seinfeld, danced his way into the hearts of America as the first-ever champion of Dancing With the Stars, and hosted NBC´s National Dog Show, award-winning actor, composer, and writer John O´Hurley was devoted to dogs. From the New England woods of his childhood to the manicured lawns of Los Angeles, he has never known life without the pleasure of a dog by his side. Now, in It´s Okay to Miss the Bed on the First Jump, a charming and hilarious book about the enduring wisdom of dogs, O´Hurley brings his love for dogs to listeners, exploring with his characteristic wit and warmth personal yet universal lessons learned from a life lived with canine companions. Within these pages we meet the dogs of O´Hurley´s life, both his and others´, who have served as some of his most valuable and enlightened teachers: Taffy, O´Hurley´s first dog, a dachshund who demonstrated that compassion is best expressed by listening; Betty, a sweet bearded dachshund/black Lab mix, who encourages us that not only will a safety net appear if we´re brave enough to leap, but that every moment has the potential to change our lives; and Scoshi, a wizened Maltese and O´Hurley´s loyal companion for 15 years, who reminds us to always bark the truth, to be grateful for every meal and every moment, to never fear a face-off, and to never miss a nap. At once poignantly moving and laugh-out-loud funny, It´s Okay to Miss the Bed on the First Jump is a must-read for dog lovers everywhere. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John O´Hurley.

It’s a known fact that a dog wants to please his/her human and takes great pleasure out of training sessions. Bonding - one of the best ways to bond with your pooch, and s/he with you, is through obedience dog training. Did you know canines use distinct body language? When a dog wants to play, she will lay both front paws spread out in front of her on the ground and rest on her elbows with her rear end sticking up in the air, head down at the ground. Every other dog around knows she’s ready to play. A submissive dog may, when being approached, tuck her tail between her legs, crouch down, and possibly even roll on her back to expose her tummy as if to say, ´´I give up.´´ Angry dogs. They bare their teeth, stick their tail in the air, put the ears forward, become rigid, and you may see the whites of her eyes. A really happy, excited pooch will run in circles, jump up and down, bark, and probably run over and lick you on the face. A depressed dog sleeps all day, has no interest in anything or anyone, won’t eat, and doesn’t want to play. Yes, dogs are plenty emotional, just like people. 1. Language: English.
