Have you ever read some blurb in the newspaper like: "fire ants discovered to teach their young" or some such headline, and wondered how the heck these scientists figured that out? This book is a perfect, succinct compendium of all the most recent studies of animal behavior, thought and emotion, the scientific conclusions, and most importantly--how exactly they arrived at these conclusions. So fascinating! If, like me, you find much more in common with animals than other humans, but you're not a trained scientist and thus shy away from the more academic ethology books, you'll just eat this up.
