Here are the secrets of changing behavior in pets, kids—even yourself—without yelling, threats, force, punishment, guilt trips...or shooting the dog:

·The principles of the revolutionary "clicker training" method, which owes its phenomenal success to its immediacy of response—so there is no question what action you are rewarding
·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
