            Comments about The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog:

            I am a second year psychology student studying in Melbourne and I ordered this book thinking it would serve as a great reference for reports in the future at best, and at least an interesting read. I was not at all disappointed! This book is intriguing, intense and very informative. It's easy to understand with terms being described as they appear, making it a great read for those with a psychological background and for those without. Love, nurture and care in a child's upbringing is an essential part of childhood development as this book clearly demonstrates. Such an eye opening book. Definitely recommend it!
