About this book

More than fifty experts on animals ranging from great apes to guppies present compelling evidence that, when faced with such circumstances as losing a child, confronting an enemy, choosing a mate, or being tricked, chastised, challenged, played with, or picked on, many animals do seem to have an emotional response, one whose underpinnings may be strikingly similar to our own. Furthermore, these familiar feelings occur even in such `unlikely' animals as birds, reptiles, and fish. Contributors include: Roger and Deborah Fouts, Sue Savage-Rumbaugh, Cynthia Moss, David Macdonald and Elizabeth Marshall Thomas.
`The authors of this book pursue a lover's quarrel with scientific convention. They write these case studies from their own experiences - not the luck of casual and fortuitous moments, but the distillation of a best and most revealing particular from a lifetime of expertise.' From the Foreword by Stephen Jay Gould.
