Dr. Marc Bekoff is renowned for making the rapidly changing science and policy around animal intelligence and emotions accessible for a mass audience. He explores our complicated relationships with animals through the lens of recent research demonstrating the surprising cognitive and emotional capacity of such animals as fish, bees, and lizards. The book is filled with amazing stories about the empathy, grief, and love we can observe in both wild and domestic animals.
