Reviews

This is a remarkable book by a remarkable scientist. Drawing on a growing body of research including his own, de Waal shows that animals, from elephants and chimpanzees to the lowly invertebrates, are not only smarter than we thought, but also engaged in forms of thought we have only begun to understand.--Edward O. Wilson, University Professor Emeritus, Harvard University
A thoughtful and easy read, packed with information stemming from detailed empirical research, and one of de Waal's most comparative works that goes well beyond the world of nonhuman primates with whom he's most familiar.--Marc Bekoff

The book is not only full of information and thought-provoking, it's also a lot of fun to read.--Nancy Szokan
