Summary

This illustrated gift book of short comics illuminates author Debbie Tung's experience as an introvert in an extrovert’s world. Presented in a loose narrative style that can be read front to back or dipped into at one’s leisure, the book spans three years of Debbie's life, from the end of college to the present day. In these early years of adulthood, Debbie slowly but finally discovers there is a name for her lifelong need to be alone: she’s an introvert.The first half of the book traces Debbie’s final year in college: socializing with peers, dating, falling in love (with an extrovert!), moving in, getting married, meeting new people, and simply trying to fit in. The second half looks at her life after graduation: finding a job, learning to live with her new husband, trying to understand social obligations when it comes to the in-laws, and navigating office life. Ultimately, Quiet Girl sends a positive, pro-introvert message: our heroine learns to embrace her introversion and finds ways to thrive in the world while fulfilling her need for quiet.

    Dog Language is a book that will benefit anyone interested in what makes our dogs tick. It is a must for the professional dog handler of behaviorist, as well as any pet owner. Dog Language is well organized and written in a clear, easily understood manner. The beautiful illustrations help to explain what our canine companions are trying to communicate to us and each other.

    If we are to understand the domestic dog's natural behavior, we must appreciate his social heritage and the adaptive significance of his many complex behavior patterns. Roger Abrantes' book Dog Language provides this knowledge, and presents it in an easy to use and understand format. This encyclopedia of canine behavior is absolutely a must for all serious students of canine behavior and training.

    Norwegian dog trainer and behaviorist Turid Rugaas is a noted expert on canine body language, notably “calming signals,” which are signals dogs use to avoid conflict, invite play, and communicate a wide range of information to other dogs and people. These are the dogs' attempt to defuse situations that otherwise might result in fights or aggression.
     
    Companion DVD, 'Calming Signals: What Your Dog Tells You,' DTB788, is also available. The DVD shows footage of many calming signals, how dogs use them, and how you can use them to calm your dog. 
     
    • Learn to identify situations that are stressful to your dog so that you can resolve or avoid them.
     
    • Rehabilitate a dog that has lost her ability to read or give calming signals.
     
    • Become a keen observer of canine behavior at home, in the community, and among dogs to get better behavior and build a solid relationship.
     
    • This new edition has outstanding photographs with captions interpreting what you observe
     
    Experts praise Turid's work
     
    Invaluable! The insightful observations of Turid Rugaas can help all of us have a deeper and more meaningful relationship with our dogs. This beautifully illustrated book belongs in the home of dog lovers everywhere.
     
    Patricia B. McConnell, Ph.D. author, The Other End of the Leash, Cautious Canine, Feeling Outnumbered and more
     
    I personally owe Turid a great debt because her work validated my observations that dogs are trying very hard to ‘talk' to us. This book was my guide and added amazing volume to my knowledge base. Her book provided the confidence to continue watching and interpreting. What a lovely gift! 
     
    Brenda Aloff author of Aggression In Dogs and Canine Body Language, A Photographic Guide
     
    This new revised edition is a “must have!” Even if you own the previous edition the photos and examples along with the writing are worth it. Turid has a wonderful gift of making everything so easy to understand and relate to…(she has made) an enormous contribution to mankind in our ever-increasing knowledge of “man's best friend”—our dogs.
