Review: Never Have Your Dog Stuffed

I'm pretty much all the way through "Never Have Your Dog Stuffed", the biography of Alan Alda. I must say, I'm enjoying it. Alan has plenty of highs and lows in his story to give you a nice balance.

Overall, the story is a good one and seems well written.

One sentance in the entire book has made it worth reading. It is as follows:

"Real listening is letting other people change you."

Wow, is that a powerful, and truthful statement. It simply is true. Next time you are arguing with someone, ask yourself if you are following Alan's advice.

I'd still suggest reading the book, even though I gave away the best line. It's fun and Alan is a very likeable guy.

I give it a 7/10 for being an enjoyable read, with an excellent takeaway.
