I often tell people my dog is smarter than I am. Now, he has a chance to prove it.
From drinking out of the toilet to “strategic” pooping, Physics for Dogs: A Crash Course in Catching Cats, Frisbees and Cars is a step-by-step guide to the mechanics behind your dog’s favorite naughty tricks. Dog-friendly illustrations and possibly not-so-dog- (or owner-) friendly quadratic equations and unit vectors explain the Newtonian logic behind old stand-bys like eating your own poop, or getting food off the table.
Amazon, of course, has the Kindle edition, so in addition to reading, quadratic algebra, and Calculus, you’ll have to teach your dog how to use a Kindle too.
