The Beginner's Guide to Animal communication

I decided within the first 5 minutes or less this book was not for me. The author seemed more interested in letting her readers know she came from an "intellectual background" (stated twice in the first 10 minutes) as well as letting us know about her terrible marriage. Who cares? I wanted to learn more about communication with animals and less about her sorry marriage. (No wonder she and her husband split; she is obviously very self-absorbed.) I'll stick to Caesar from now on.

A total waste

The books opens with a story about a cat that soils the house. So she divorces her husband and suddenly the cat is now ok. The author might consider trying to communicate with her husband instead of her cat. Total waste of time. After working for years successfully with animals this book is total hogwash. The author seems to believe that animals have the same mental processes of humans whilst proclaiming that she comes from an intellectual background. All the while relying on a pyschic ability for both the human and the animal to communicate. The author has obviously undergone much therapy and ends the audiobook with offering some guided meditation exercises with no apparent qualifications to do so.

Didn't finish this one... Couldn't deal with the self agrandizing.

May be possible?

The author suggests that after meditation and reaching a calm clear mind, you may telepathically connect with animals. I know my animals can sense the family energy, however I don't give myself that much credit. It ws a well written book and a nice listen.
