Talking Animals | Listen to this entire show:

John Homans–the longtime executive editor of New York magazine who published his first book, “What’s A Dog For?: The Surprising History, Science, Philosophy, and Politics of Man’s Best Friend”–discusses how he decided “What’s A Dog For” would represent his first foray into writing books. He also addresses the way he approached writing the book, propelled primarily by his love for and interest in the current family dog, Stella. Homans explains a bit about how he achieved the sweeping scope and detail of the book–touching on an enormous array of dog-related issues and areas–in fewer than 300 pages.
