    "My Sister's Keeper is not a good book for dog training. This story is more of a heartfelt recollection of a sisters Anna and Kate and the unselfishness in donating bone marrow to her sister suffering from leukemia. This books not really for dog training."

    "Light a Single Candle can be a good read for those interesting in hearing about dogs, but you should know what it is and what it is not before buying it. It is really not a book about how to train your dog or about dog behavior, but rather is more like a memoir. The healing power of dogs is one theme of the story, but certainly not the only one. It's clearly meant to be inspirational and narrative instead of instructive, which is fine, but just be aware of this."
