If you like dogs, you will LOVE this book. It's told from the viewpoint of a dog. He believes he will be reincarnated as a human (he saw it on TV once) so he tries to act more human. He wants to help his family with their problems, but he can only watch their trouble unfold and lament his lack of opposable thumbs.— Sheri, Raleigh
This is one of the best books I’ve read recently. I resisted picking it up because I didn’t think there was room in the world for another “my dog changed my life” book. This is different. Enzo is not another precious dog; he’s a character I’d like to hang out with. This book will break your heart and give you hope. I have loved a dog, been loved by a dog and (a little brag here) driven a racecar on a track. Garth Stein makes me want to do those things again and then tell everybody about it.— Sydne, Atlanta
“Sometimes, if you are very lucky, fate gives you a special friend. Denny's friend Enzo will stand by him through some of the best and worst times of his life, his faith in Denny bone deep. Enzo is a dog, a dog with a very old soul. Denny is a race driver with natural talent, but sometimes life gets in the way of natural talent, and the road can have sharp bends. Suffused with humor, love, pain, and valor, this should be one of the year's best books!”

“The perfect book for anyone who knows that compassion isn’t only for humans, and that the relationship between two souls who are meant for each other never really comes to an end. Every now and then I’m lucky enough to read a novel I can’t stop thinking about: this is one of them.” —Jodi Picoult
“It’s impossible not to love Enzo.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune
“This old soul of a dog has much to teach us about being human. I loved this book.” —Sara Gruen
