What is a shopworn or damaged title?

We often have books that have slight damage to either the cover or the interior of the books that don't allow us to sell them as brand new. If you don't need a brand new looking book, these are a great option. 


Ken Ramirez wrote and edited this book as a training manual for his staff and for students of his graduate course on Animal Training. Originally published by the Shedd Aquarium in 1999  it is now in its fourth printing with The Karen Pryor Clicker Training Company at a new low price! Animal Training has become the "must have" book for zoo and aquarium trainers world-wide. The book is a collection of articles by over 100 trainers focusing on training topics ranging from beginner to advanced. The book is divided into chapters that guides the reader through the development of a professional training program. Each chapter shares Ken's perspective on how to put a training program together then introduces the reader to articles that appear at the end of each chapter.

Here's a chance to really explore the thinking and the training protocols involved in reinforcement-based training-whether it's your dog or a cranky elephant or a group of killer whales. This is a year or more of entertaining bedside reading for any training buff, and an important resource for the serious student of operant conditioning. Many of the reprinted articles include data, graphs, training logs, and other background material, and detailed references. With an index, glossary, and suggested reading.
