About this book

Examines new discoveries in animal behaviour that have made the idea of consciousness on other species not just a vague possibility but a plausible, scientifically respected point of view. This idea is not in itself novel but Stamp Dawkins writes with a rare clarity and vigour.

Impeccable.--Booklist
"An impressive compendium of brilliantly lucid descriptions of reliable observations of the intricacy of animal behavior."--Times Higher Education Supplement
