Nothing turns a baby’s head more quickly from nursing or playing than the sight of a dog or any animal. Made for Each Other lays out both sides of this deep mutual connection and the way it has evolved since prehistoric times. Drawing on the fascinating work of scientists in many fields, from neuroscience to zoology and anthropology, as well as her own investigations, Meg Daley Olmert shows the roots of this age-old bond and its great importance to our well being.read more
Reviews for Made for Each Other: The Biology of the Human-Animal Bond
Every book has a story. This one doesn't make the exception to the rule.I bought this book in London, on vacation because I hadn't found it in Brussels and I began reading it by thinking of my late cat, who passed away last year. Of course, I miss her very much and the reading made me miss her more, because we discover how important the relationship between animals are (whatever it is a dog, a horse, a cat).The author makes us discover this relationship in a historic and scientific point of view, the key to this relationship is oxytocin, an important neurotransmittor who favorises social bonding.I strongly recommend this book to all people (pet owners or not)read more
