  • 8 methods of ending undesirable habits--from furniture-clawing cats to sloppy roommates
  • The 10 laws of "shaping" behavior -- for results without strain or pain through "affection training"
  • Tips for house-training the dog, improving your tennis game, or dealing with an impossible teen
  • Explorations of exciting new uses for reinforcement training
