Interesting & scholarly publication on the topic

For individuals or groups interested in researching human-animal relationships and the human-animal bond, this book provides a scholarly listing and description of numerous surveys, questionnaires, and scales - with examples of instruments - regarding this subject. I enjoyed the book and feel it would benefit anyone who would like to review or, perhaps, choose an appropriate instrument for current human-animal bond research.
From my point of view, the text is likely to appeal to academics, graduate students looking for a thesis/dissertation instrument, or social science researchers. Since I have done research on the human-animal bond, I found this book interesting and will keep it for future reference. A lot of scholarly work obviously went into compounding this info into one volume and I wish this information had been available when I was in graduate school.
The only thing I might add is that it's not a book for everyone, like a text or guidebook, but this book provides important info for those interested in the field
