The Language of Animals: 7 Steps to Communicating with Animals

by Carol Gurney (Author)



Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly
"Animal communication is nothing new or controversial," Gurney writes. "The
question is not `When did we begin to be able to communicate with other
species?' but `When did we stop?' " Of the many new books on interspecies
communication, Gurney's is one of the most down-to-earth and thorough. Based on
her HeartTalk Program through which Gurney has worked with 6,000 people seeking
better communication with their "animal companions" (a term favored by animal
communicators as more egalitarian than "pet") her book offers clear steps for
reaching animals and will enhance readers' understanding of the creatures in
their lives. Gurney also discusses how to choose an appropriate animal
companion, how to prepare for his or her death (one of the most tender sections
is a list of 18 ways to commemorate deceased pets) and how to ground and center
oneself in preparation for communicating with an animal. Written in a smooth,
cheery and encouraging tone she's partial to exclamation points and statements
like "If I could do it, anyone can!" Gurney's descriptions of her own successful
communication with dogs, horses and cats will convince those sympathetic to her
message. Yet some of Gurney's advice may test even her most credulous readers:
her exercises with animals who have died and with missing animals, for example,
may raise some eyebrows. But for the most part, this book is helpful and
enthralling. B&w photos. Agent, Jody Rein. (Aug. 14) Forecast: Though some will
be put off by Gurney's occasionally corny sentimentality, many pet owners will
welcome this book. Enthusiastic blurbs from vets (and more randomly, actress
Linda Gray) should help sales.
