This engaging and authoritative portrait of animals' emotional lives is as groundbreaking as Darwin's Origin of Species in the facts and insights it presents about the animal kingdom. You'll meet an Indian elephant known for his facial expressions, a shy gorilla who is proficient in sign language and loves to play house with dolls, and an African grey parrot who, when left at the veterinarian's, cried, "Come here! I love you. I'm sorry. I want to go back." Animal lovers know that their dogs, cats, and birds have complex emotional lives, and now scientists have begun to chip away at this traditional scientific taboo.
"A masterpiece, the most comprehensive and compelling argument for animal sensibility that I've ever seen." (Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, author of The Hidden Life of Dogs)

Beautiful discussion on all emotions...

Enter the mind of another being
Humans tend to be arrogant about their supposed superiority but this book shows how wrong this is. Animals other than humans are not dim robotic shadows of humans but worlds unto themselves.
There isn't a character. The authors are describing the mental lives that other species live.
I don't think so but he did very well.
Yes and I did.
If you think "man shall govern the beasts" or whatever the Bible says Wrong. The BibLe written by humans. Don't think anyone witnessed GOD guiding someone. Other species on this planet are just as important and entitled to their lives.
