  1. Here s the thing about Sheldrake and his theories When you re reading them, they make perfect sense They re internally consistent pretty much and his rationale seems waterproof, while he s actually talking to you It s only as you start thinking about what you ve read that you realize something s up First of all, if his data is as rigorous as he claims why has none of it been published in a major peer reviewed journal His answer is that the establishment is against him As someone familiar with th [...]


  2. My old dog Sam travels to work with me every Friday See that happy face That s Sam driving to work with me one Friday I never say a word about it being Friday until I m nearly walking out the door because he gets ridiculously excited and when he gets excited, he pees Not just a dribble either Let me tell ya, there s nothing like getting peed on when you re all dressed and running late for work It took me a few years before I discovered that telling Sam ahead of time that It s Friday Sam, we re g [...]



  3. This book explores the paranormal abilities of dogs, cats, horses, birds and other animals Sheldrake attempts to explain how these animals can sense when their owners are returning home, as well as other abilities that remain unexplained For example, how can a dog or cat alert its owner before they have an epileptic fit Or before there is an earthquake or other natural disaster Some animals show signs of agitation hours before an event like this, when no known sensory abilities would detect anyt [...]


  4. Either you get Rupert or you think he is a total whack job I think I get him I mean like, haven t you wondered if your pet knows stuff like is in the title of this book You do, right You won t admit it because you figure people will make fun of you and they will gleefully , but you do Well, good old Rupe doesn t give a rat s patootie what other people think He just checks out stuff he finds interesting, and devises experiments to see what s really going on.This books is full of totally cool inve [...]


  5. I m reminded of this book today due to my dog doing something very smart Nevertheless I still believe this book is complete drivel Despite my dog being smart, she can t figure out on which days I m going to take her for a morning walk if my wife is home, we don t go So she s definitely not psychic.The problem with this book is that there s just no standards in the evidence Sheldrake recounts many anecdotes in which at the exact same moment, on the other side of town something happens Of course h [...]


  6. Definitely enjoyed the anecdotes and I agree it s well worth beginning the documentation process of such anecdotes I feel like he s making a huge leap to his hypothesis of morphic fields, but I love that he s trying to think of something new and breaking out of the current paradigm His hypothesis is not impossible, I just don t think he has enough evidence to support it But documenting all of these cases and doing experiments like the ones with Jaytee is a good start to discovering about anima [...]


  7. This book proved what pet owners have always known, that animals have an uncanny knack for communicating with their owners , hundreds of pet owners had obviously been asked to fill in a questionaire answering questions about their experience with pets , knowing when their owner had been ill, what time they were coming home even if they had a different routine every day, animals who knew when their owners had passed away, owners who had sensed their pets were ill, lost or in trouble, the stories [...]


  8. My dog can tell when I m coming home even though I arrive at varying times and on a bicycle and so it s hard to explain by timing or hearing or smelling something from far away I would like to understand how dogs can do this It is a legitimate scientific question The book has numerous interesting examples of this sort of thing, but instead of going deep and answering the question, Sheldrake goes broad and shallow with lots of anecdotes about remarkable behaviors by lots of different animals homi [...]


  9. The author delves into the theme of perceptiveness, which includes telepathy, sense of direction, and premonitions.He provides numerous examples of animals who perceive the arrival times of their humans Dogs, cats, and other pets exhibit animal understanding and empathy The social bonds between dogs and humans and between cats and humans are wonderful and intense Dogs howl when their owners die Dogs can even respond to accidents befalling their owners, who may be many miles away On an everyday l [...]


  10. This is one of those books that has an interesting premise and some interesting data that might support it, but the proposed theory of what the data means is complete an utter drivel Morphic fields Please Let s just admit that we don t KNOW why some animals display an uncanny knack for knowing when their owners are coming home, be impressed that there are a fair number of cases of it, and be done with it.


  11. I pulled this out of the wildlife section at the Oxfam bookshop,as I guess they where confused as to which section to display it in,and after reading it I m still not in a position to advise them on this matter The book is to a larger degree constructed of testimonies and data that verify the authors theories on Morphic Fields,which is only referred to in passing, and as such it presupposes the readers familiarity with his previous works on this subject.If you are coming to this book without thi [...]


  12. I think the topic has plenty of merit and commend Sheldrake for persisting in the face of opposition Perhaps some of his ideas or methods are dubious but it does seem like he is treated rather unfairly if he is indeed accurately portraying the interactions in the Controversies section, which describes some terrible behavior by a few of his critics I didn t enjoy the book mainly because it felt long and rote I feel the 337 pages could have been thinned to around 100 It felt very repetitive throug [...]


  13. The author takes a quite scientific approach to a very unscientific subject in this book, offering evidence and examples of animal telepathy and precognition Obviously, the examples and case studies are the most interesting parts of the book and the science behind the theory is easily broken down to make this an entertaining non fiction book I do wonder if in the nine years between this book s publication and my discovery of it, if the outlined experiments for further study took place And what t [...]


  14. I was enlightened to learn of the powers of animals to sense things using faculties other than sight, sound and smell The author attempts to define what the faculties are with theories that are difficut to prove but gives many different examples and encourages readers to test and note the behaviour of their pets as a way of gaining understanding It is a fascinating subject and has made me aware of a level of communication with animals, both domestic and wild, that doesn t have to be verbal.


  15. Sheldrakella on teoria morfisista kentist , jotka yhdist v t el imi , ihmisi ja paikkoja, ja se tulee kirjan lukijalle kyll hyvin selv ksi Minua j i kiinnostamaan se, mik on se aisti tai kyky, jolla n m morfiset kent t tunnistetaan ja hy dynnet n.Kirjan parasta antia ovat esimerkkikertomukset el inten ennustavista taidoista sek kuvaukset tutkimuksista, joilla kirjan kirjoittaja on tapauksia tutkinut.T m n luettuaan alkaa katsella el inkuntaa entist kin uteliaammalla ja kunnioittavalla silm ll.


  16. I m going to show my age and just say it it felt like I was reading for class and I have no idea what the prof wants me to get out of it The original thesis is clear, the organization is solid, but the bulk of this book is anecdotal And I m not sure what to draw from that Yes, there are some studies, but there are far reports and statistical compilations of said reports Maybe Sheldrake is on to something, but I don t think he s there yet.


  17. This is a great book that proves that there is a lot going on with animals awareness than science currently understands The author provides numerous examples of animals acting as if they are pre cognitive and supports his case very well Dogs, cats, birds and horses included The way he approached it leaves no doubt in my mind that he has identified something that clearly exists but that science has yet to explain.


  18. This is another book that I probably would have enjoyed as a long article than a book I can see that it s very popular but I found it quite repetitive I m not used to reading quite so much information about the mechanics of doing studies such as were performed here so that could be part of the problem I had.


  19. I skimmed this book to try and find out how dogs and other pets but I only cared about dogs know when their owners are en route to them and unless I missed it no one knows exactly how, they just do My dog is often looking out the front window when I get home but I assume he spends a lot of time looking out the window.


  20. This book was an enjoyable read I have experienced my dog seeming to know when I was home and my grandmother once knew when my dad was in an accident, but otherwise I don t agree with the authors premise of telepathy I don t know how you could scientifically prove something like that One person believes it is telepathy, another that it is spiritual Who is right


  21. As with so many basically scientific books, it is very repetitive But through the years, I am almost as repetitive as I retell the research and the findings This isn t a dog story This is a cosmic awareness moment as we learn that what connects us with our animals are morphic fields, that interconnectedness with other that can so easily stretch through space and distance.


  22. I absolutely adore animals most especially dogs I picked up this book with my late dog, and best pal Ivan in mind I lost him not too long ago and was looking for a comfort read I enjoyed this book and have to commend Sheldrake for even pursuing such a topic His scientific approach was charming and appreciated by me If you re not a pet lover you should probably not read this book.


  23. A scientist who writes well, Sheldrake has amazing stories to tell about dogs and other animals in this book, and some of them are so well documented that it would be hard for anyone to reject them out of hand, strange though they are.Highly recommended for dog lovers and for anyone with an interest considering the possibility that what we normally consider to be real may not be all there is.


  24. A little dryer than I thought it was going to be,but I still enjoyed it There is a lot focus on research as opposed to animal stories, which was what I was hoping for Still, I enjoyed reading the science behind it all, and the snippet stories were fun too.Borrowed from my local library I did not know they had a copy until I accidentally stumbled across it Four stars for animals


  25. I read this book some time ago and liked the material that it covered Animals are definitely tuned in when it comes to the welfare of their human companions Mr Sheldrake is a riot to watch check him out on youtube or some other social media site to hear him wax on.


  26. The first couple of chapters really drew me in but the rest of the book quickly devolved into conjecture and statements around If we had experiments then we would have proof of It was a bit of a slog.


  27. Read the anecdotal tales, then the facts by trial Science has a long way to go to deal with these morphic fields in explanation Sheldrake is no quack Brilliant


  28. This is a very interesting book indeed and tells you a lot of what your dogs are perhaps thinking and the way they behave in certain situations.
