In an editorial review by Coastal Canine Magazine, the editor comments: “Really Important Stuff My Dog Has Taught Me is tender, funny, warm, and utterly inspiring. Pairing an irresistible photograph with just the right sentiment, every page delivers a life lesson that appeals as much to our hearts as our minds.” In one five-star review titled “Touching thoughts to inspire!” the reviewer comments: “Fantastic gift for anyone, but especially dog lovers. Incredible sayings & thoughts to lift and inspire.” Another reviewer in her five-star review titled “Much more than wonderful pix!” said: A lot of books are filled with heartwarming photos. This book certainly has those, but it also has uplifting real-life stories, briefly told. It was given to me by a friend. I bought two as gifts for dog-loving friends. It's the kind of book I go through over and over, sometimes with laughter, and always with my heart touched. There are only a couple one-star reviews.

However, most reviews can be summed up by one reviewer’s simple four-star review that the book is: “sweet and touching.” Final Verdict With numerous five-star reviews and a best-selling author at the helm, it is safe to say that this is a book worth buying. Just keep in mind that it is not meant to be filled with deep philosophical
