Great book

I just finished Carl Safina’s Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel and it was excellent!! The three main sections examine the mental worlds of elephants, wolves and killer whales/dolphins, but that simplifies the the beauty and depth of this book into a dry sentence. Just go read it. It will cause you to ponder and wonder!!!

    Just read this review of Safina’s book on Psychology Today: https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/animal-emotions/201507/beyond-words-new-book-about-what-animals-think-and-feel

    It sounds like an awesome piece of writing. Watching wild animals on Wild Safari Live has led me to the conclusion that their cognitive abilities are far closer to our own than most humans realize. They feel, they think, they dream, and they plan: although their thoughts may be quite different than our own.

    I’d love to read this book after I finish Biology and Conservation of Wild Felids. Thanks for making me aware of it!
