Fascinating studies about animal communications beyond human hearing, particularly elephants. I anticipate much more research on giraffes and other "silent" critters. This book also offers insight into the lives and dailing workings of field researchers. Most enjoyable.

was not as interesting as i had hoped, being a linguist. the beginning was quite boring and hard to get through before reaching the informative parts.

This book is well written and one of the few popular science books I've seen that has actually gotten the science right!
