The Heartbeat at Your Feet is the first book to reveal how you can fully understand and communicate with dogs, and how you can easily eliminate any behavior problems, based on new information about animal behavior. Each chapter explores the mind of the dog, its instincts, body language, how and why dogs respond to the people and animals around them, and the profound insights you can gain into what your dog is thinking and feeling through the simple process of observation. Enlightening (and entertaining!), the book guides readers to look at life from your dog’s point of view, to understand what your dog is trying to tell you and why, and to notice what makes your pooch listen to you. Including real-life examples throughout the work, The Heartbeat at Your Feet explains how positive methods of behavior modification work more effectively (and permanently) than old dominance methods, which have now proven to be ineffective. As a canine psychologist and professional consultant to dog owners, Lisa Tenzin-Dolma explains compassionate ways of working with dogs and offers readers a guide to improving pet behavior and the relationship between you and your beloved pooch.

One cold February night, a terrified feral dog was carried into the author's home, and began a very different life to everything he had previously known. This is the true story of the extraordinary bond that developed between Lisa and Charlie, a one-eyed Romanian feral dog, who had lived wild until he was captured and sent to the UK to be homed. Unused to the presence of people, Charlie had no coping skills other than to follow his instincts. Although Lisa had worked with many deeply troubled dogs, the challenges posed by Charlie's background were unique. Wild, fearful and highly reactive, more wolf than dog, Charlie needed a great deal of understanding, patience and compassion in order to help him adjust to his new life. Despite numerous obstacles and setbacks, the developing relationship between Charlie and Lisa, and Lisa's daughter, Amber, and resident dog, Skye, transformed all of their lives. Charlie's gradual shift from fearful feral to happy, affectionate, fun-loving family dog is touching and heart-warming, and clearly demonstrates the transformative power of love and kindness.

“Will the tiger be menacing; will the ocean be threatening; will the island be something out of Frankenstein or will it be an Eden?”—Yann Martel Life of Pi, first published in 2002, became an international bestseller and remains one of the most extraordinary and popular works of contemporary fiction. In 2005 an international competition was held to find the perfect artist to illustrate Yann Martel’s Man Booker Prize–winning novel. From thousands of entrants, Croatian artist Tomislav Torjanac was chosen. This lavishly produced edition features forty of Torjanac’s beautiful four-color illustrations, bringing Life of Pi to splendid, eye-popping life. Tomislav Torjanac says of his illustrations: “My vision of the illustrated edition of Life of Pi is based on paintings from a first person’s perspective—Pi’s perspective. The interpretation of what Pi sees is intermeshed with what he feels and it is shown through [the] use of colors, perspective, symbols, hand gestures, etc.”

Awe and exhiliration--along with heartbreak and mordant wit--abound in Lolita, Nabokov's most famous and controversial novel, which tells the story of the aging Humbert Humbert's obsessive, devouring, and doomed passion for the nymphet Dolores Haze. Lolita is also the story of a hypercivilized European colliding with the cheerful barbarism of postwar America. Most of all, it is a meditation on love--love as outrage and hallucination, madness and transformation.
