CX Success Engineer Genevieve Crow just finished Don't Shoot The Dog! The New Art of Teaching and Training by Karen Pryor.

This book is a concise guide to using positive reinforcement to shape animal – and human – behavior. I stumbled across it as a dog owner struggling with some of my pup's less charming habits. (The dog actually ate my first copy of the book.) Pryor is one of the founders of “clicker training,” an animal training method that uses a small metal noisemaker to mark desired behaviors. In addition to practical dog training tips, this title offers a lot of interesting, and often entertaining, insights into how we teach and learn more generally.

Chief of Staff Asta So just finished Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a new play based on an original story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany.

This was fun, a script sequel to the books. It’s a quick read; I finished it over a weekend trip with an airport layover. It started off somewhat clunky but got into its groove. I’ve since read there’s controversy over whether what happens to the characters would truly happen to them, and some fans don’t consider this sequel part of the official Harry Potter 'canon.' But I enjoyed revisiting the characters. Now I’m interested in seeing the play—it opens on Broadway next year.
