For a taster, check out this piece by Brandow for Dogs Today Magazine - he's a very sharp and witty writer.
'An essential and incredibly well documented read for those who want to know more about how we have strongly, selfishly and negatively affected the awesome beings whom many call their BFF, the very beings who depend on us to have their best interests in heart and mind. Agree or not, Mr. Brandow's book is a serious, significant and most timely message that deserves a global audience. It really is that good'
'A must-read for all dog lovers'
'An often biting social critique of people, their dogs, and the world they have made for each other'
'A no-holds-barred defense of dogs that are the hapless victims of their clueless owners'
'Brandow not only unearths the status-driven history of so-called 'purebreds' but exhorts us to love all dogs regardless of breed'
'Incredibly important... a delightful read with fascinating insights into the history and psychology of the purebred-dog world'
'If you're considering welcoming a dog (or two) into your family, read Michael Brandow's fascinating and eye-opening book... A dog is a living, loving creature, not an accessory item, and Brandow makes his case persuasively and with wit.'
'Brandow's A Matter of Breeding is at once a keenly observed memoir of his days as a New York City dog walker, a thoroughly researched history of purebred dogs, and an often biting social critique of people, their dogs, and the world they have made for each other.'
