Editorial Reviews

Review

“A good book. Read it instead of watching TV or playing video games. The whole world will be better as a result.”
- Maria Rodale, Daily Beast

“When I was growing up, aspiring naturalists or behavioral scientists would be given a copy of Konrad Lorenz’s zoological investigation King Solomon’s Ring to inspire them. With its wide-ranging and thought-provoking content, Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are? is an appropriate 21st-century replacement. If you are at all interested in what it is to be an animal, human or otherwise, you should read this book.”
- Matthew Cobb, The Guardian

“An entertaining, convincing case for assessing each species’s intelligence on its own terms….not only full of information and thought-provoking, it’s also a lot of fun to read.”
- Nancy Szokan, The Washington Post

“Astonishing...has the makings of a classic--and one fantastic read.”
- People

“A passionate and convincing case for the sophistication of nonhuman minds.”
- Alison Gopnik, The Atlantic

“A thoughtful and easy read, packed with information stemming from detailed empirical research, and one of de Waal's most comparative works that goes well beyond the world of nonhuman primates with whom he's most familiar.”
- Marc Bekoff, Psychology Today

“Engaging and informative.”
- The New York Times

“A beautifully written and delightfully conceived popular science book, written by an eminent researcher who has dedicated his career to making the general public aware of just how smart animals are.”
- Nicola Clayton, Science

“Walks us through research revealing what a ride range of animal species are actually capable of....it all deals a pretty fierce wallop to our sense of specialness.”
- Jon Mooallem, New York Times Book Review

“A fascinating history of the study of animal behavior and cognition.”
- Bark
