I first learned about Cesar Millan from the National Geographic Channel, where I happened to watch his show the Dog Whisperer. I was amazed at how easily he transformed "Problem Dogs" (meaning: Problem Owners)and I wanted to learn more about him and his methods. In "Cesar's Way" we learn more about the author's background and how he developed his passion for helping and working with dogs. I found the part about his childhood in Mexico very interesting. Especially when he outlined the different attitudes that people have towards dogs. Cesar also goes over his basic principles of living with a well balanced dog. And what it takes to become a great pack leader. Some of these principles are very basic yet it seems most humans have forgotten them. But as Cesar proves time and time again his method works and it is by no means harmful or even cruel to dogs. Overall, a fast and entertaining read, with advice that can even be applied towards other areas of life.

I believe this to be the first book written by Cesar Millan also known as the Dog Whisperer. This is not a dog training book as the man is not a dog trainer as some people mistakenly believe. Instead it covers his story from a poor kid in Mexico to the Dog Whisperer explaining some of his methodologies and philosophies when it comes to living in harmony with a dog or a pack of dogs. He also explains and expands on his core idea of exercise-discipline and affection. If you want to learn more about the man himself this is a good little book to get.
Required Reading for U.S. Dog Owners
Cesar Millan's written an informative, easy-to-read, & easy-to-understand book that should be Required Reading for every Dog Owner & Prospective Dog Owner in the United States. It's well worth reading even if you don't have a dog, because you'll be near a dog sometime in your life, & Cesar explains how to behave.

Part autobiography, part dog book. This is written by the "Dog Whisperer" from the National Geographic channel program. Born in Mexico, and at one time an illegal immigrant to the US, now on track towards citizenship, Cesar Millan knew from a yong age that he would work with animals if at all possible. He grew up around dogs, observing them, and learning. He shares his journey to the US, and into his chosen profession -- one that he has pretty much defined. He also shares his vews on keeping a dog, and his pack (which means us) balanced, with the human leaning how to be the pack leader, and the dog the calm submissive follower. It is all about displaying the right energy and following that with good discipline and lots of exercise. Recommended.
Not really well writte...
Not really well written, redundant and full of brief anecdotes. There are not a lot of specifics about how to stop a behavior. So I've taken a 1/2 a star for that. But the concepts are extremely valuable. The idea of exercise/discipline/affection in that order, is alone worth knowing, and knowing well. Anyone who is thinking of buying a dog should read this book. Dogs need a tremendous amount of exercise (time) and this book emphasizes this important fact.
