How to Be a Good Creature: A Memoir in Thirteen Animals
National Book Award finalist Sy Montgomery reflects on the personalities and quirks of 13 animals—her friends—who have profoundly affected her in this stunning, poetic, and life-affirming memoir featuring illustrations by Rebecca Green.

Understanding someone who belongs to another species can be transformative. No one knows this better than author, naturalist, and adventurer Sy Montgomery. To research her books, Sy has traveled the world and encountered some of the planet’s rarest and most beautiful animals. From tarantulas to tigers, Sy’s life continually intersects with and is informed by the creatures she meets.

This restorative memoir reflects on the personalities and quirks of thirteen animals—Sy’s friends—and the truths revealed by their grace. It also explores vast themes: the otherness and sameness of people and animals; the various ways we learn to love and become empathetic; how we find our passion; how we create our families; coping with loss and despair; gratitude; forgiveness; and most of all, how to be a good creature in the world.

Designer Dogs: An Exposé: Inside the Criminal Underworld of Crossbreeding

--- WITH A FOREWORD BY DR. PHIL MCGRAW ---

Designer Dogs is the shocking exposure of the dangers of continuing to make our dogs tinier or funnier looking, more “Instagram worthy,” and presents startling new revelations on why this threatens French bulldogs, pit bulls, and other favorite breeds with extinction.

Ever heard of a labradoodle, a goldendoodle, or a puggle? How about a cockapoo, a pomsky, or a spoodle? You or a friend have certainly been enticed by a “hypoallergenic dog” or smiled at a “teacup.” These are not dog breeds that nature created; these are the results of the forced mating or genetic engineering of different breeds, or inbreeding, and popularized by social media and celebrities.

In Designer Dogs, Madeline Bernstein, one of the country’s most respected animal welfare crusaders, reveals our culture’s obsession with new types of dogs—engineering puppies that keep getting smaller or sillier looking—and the horrifying health consequences of this on those we claim as our best friends. She also provides extraordinary revelations on how this has led to a world of “disposable pets”—puppies and adult dogs abandoned when their medical expenses become too costly and added to the 6.5 million animals entering shelters each year, or put on the street—and informed insight into what’s ahead: made-to-order puppies; hybrid animals; shorter life spans for dogs; and even the extinction of breeds like French bulldogs, pit bulls, King Charles spaniels, mastiffs, Skye terriers, bloodhounds, and more. And Bernstein calls out those responsible for the savagery, both domestic puppy mills and backyard breeders, and also an international dog trafficking ring that she’s been on the front line exposing.

In the vein of Peter Singer’s groundbreaking and best-selling volume Animal Liberation, this one-of-a-kind book is one of the most important industry exposés ever published. Bernstein’s game-changing and unforgettable text ripe with ethical questions is a public window into a new and fast-growing industry, and destined to cause outrage and save lives in the process.
