Críticas:

"A thoughtful look at animal intelligence and the human-dog connection."

"[T]his summer's "Marley"? In his memoir cum training manual, Kerasote waxes poetic about his mutt Merle and provides tips for deepening the dog/human bond."

"Kerasote gives readers much to consider that will enrich their own relationships with their pets. His book is highly recommended, but it does come with a tissue alert."

"Merle's Door is a window into the mind of a dog.  You will experience his loyalty, fears, and joys and his true inner self. Everybody who loves dogs must read this book."

"In telling Merle's story, Kerasote also explores the science behind canine behavior and evolution, weaving in research on the human-canine bond and musing on the way dogs see the world. Merle is a true character, yet Merle is also Everydog. An absolute treasure of a book."

"It is no exaggeration to say that "Merle's Door" could be the best book ever written about a dog or dogs--one dog in particular, the magnificent Merle of the title, but also about dogs in general.... It is beautifully written, a real page turner, often funny, always fascinating, and very moving. It's a book you will never forget."

"Reading "Merle's Door" involves more than just sailing through an engaging biography of a man sharing his life with a rare and free-spirited dog since it contains islands of useful and scientifically sound information about dog behavior as well. To be entertained and educated at the same time time is rare in dog books, which makes this one definitely worth reading."

"This exquisitely written book is sure to be controversial, but it raises important questions that every thoughtful dog owner should consider."

"Humorous, jubilant and touching by turns... Kerasote''s strong love for Merle and enthusiasm for life in the wild will win over many readers."

"[T]his summer''s "Marley"? In his memoir cum training manual, Kerasote waxes poetic about his mutt Merle and provides tips for deepening the dog/human bond."

"Merle' s Door is a love story for grown-ups-- an intense reciprocal relationship between a dog and his man, and how we and our dogs genuinely share feelings and emotions."

"Kerasote has created a whole new work of art. "Merle''s Door" is the best, the most utterly compelling translation of dog to human I have ever seen. A terrific book, a superb book, I can''t think of a single other book that conveys the love of a human for a dog so well."

"In telling Merle''s story, Kerasote also explores the science behind canine behavior and evolution, weaving in research on the human-canine bond and musing on the way dogs see the world. Merle is a true character, yet Merle is also Everydog. An absolute treasure of a book."

"Beginning with "Jock of the Bushveld" in 1907, many biographies have been written about wonderful dogs whose lives have crossed the borders between the wild and the tame, but none surpasses "Merle''s Door," It is a joyous, sad, gripping, and deeply moving testament to the fulfilling relationship that can grow between human and dog."

"Reading "Merle''s Door" involves more than just sailing through an engaging biography of a man sharing his life with a rare and free-spirited dog since it contains islands of useful and scientifically sound information about dog behavior as well. To be entertained and educated at the same time time is rare in dog books, which makes this one definitely worth reading."
