My Friend Wrote A Phenomenal Book.
I especially love dogs, whose intelligence can be on a par with a three-year-old child. One particular dog was exceedingly special, and Rob Weintraub, who has been one of my best friends since the tenth grade, has written about her.
Rob’s new book is called No Better Friend, and it’s an amazing true story about a dog named Judy that befriended a British naval man and wound up saving his life while surviving several brutal Japanese POW camps and a torpedo attack with him.
iTunes named it one of the 20 best iBooks of May, and it’s no surprise – Rob’s writing/storytelling ability was way beyond anyone elses’ back in high school. He writes for a lot of publications and websites, including The New York Times, and three of his books are critically acclaimed.
Some critics are saying his latest is the best dog book since Marley and Me. I think it’s one of the best, period.
