Reviewer: Shaya
I loved reading about Karen Pryor's background and all her experiences with dolphins. There are so many great stories in this book. I particularly liked reading about her experiences with Skinner and Lorenz, differences in training different species, primary differences between male and female trainers, and the creativeness of some of the dolphins.

I love this book - it's very interesting reading about how Karen Pryor got her start by training marine mammals.

Reviewer: Lulu Clarke
Lads Before the Wind is a definite must-read. It is fun to read and hard to put down. I was referred to this book by an aquaintance who mentioned a training method used to build creativity (page 234 in the expanded edition). The story of the not very creative Hou was inspiring, as I have a 9 year old GSD who is, in my opinion not creative (relies on me for cues and lures).
The process of aquiring the animals (chapter 4 'Collecting') was very interesting. I had never really thought about how they got the dolphins and whales into the parks before reading this. While I felt uneasy about the way of capturing the animals, I appreciated that Karen didn't leave it out to paint a prettier picture. After all, if no one had gotten a chance to train dolphins, where would our beloved Clicker Training be? Excellent book, I loved reading it.
