Summary
Jonathan Balcombe, animal behaviorist and author of the critically acclaimed "Pleasurable Kingdom," draws on the latest research, observational studies and personal anecdotes to reveal the full gamut of animal experience--from emotions, to problem solving, to moral judgment, while at the same time challenging the widely held idea that nature is red in tooth and claw and highlighting animal traits we have disregarded until now
