About the Author:

Clive Wynne is Professor in Psychology at the University of Florida, USA, where he directs the Canine Cognition and Behavior laboratory. He is also research director at Wolf Park in Indiana.
Monique Udell is Assistant Professor of Animal Sciences at Oregon State University, USA. She has a special interest in the role of experience and environment in the development of cross-species interactions and bonds, including those between humans and domestic dogs.

Review:

'This book communicates the intriguing facts about animal cognition, and how fascinating it can be to investigate animal minds, without talking down to the reader, exaggerating animals' mental capacities, or implying that outstanding questions have been answered...A very unusual combination.' - Professor Cecilia Heyes, University College London

'Wynne writes clearly, engages the reader well, and gives lots of examples and anecdotes but does not sacrifice rigour.' - Professor Michael Corballis, University of Auckland

'Extremely readable, particularly for undergraduates...the first book of its kind that is well-suited for an advanced undergraduate course rather than for a graduate course.' - Professor Tom Zentall, University of Kentucky

'An excellent introduction to animal cognition...Coverage is impressively thorough...Wynne has a delightfully engaging, informal style. It is clear that the author enjoys what he is writing about, and this enjoyment is readily conveyed to the reader.' - Professor John Pearce, Cardiff University

"This book is vivid and engaging, and tackles the important questions in animal cognition in a highly readable style, enlivening the discussion with historical quotations, illustrations and personal anecdotes." - Lucia Jacobs, Professor of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley, USA

""Animal Cognition" provides an up-to-date account of the mental life of animals by surveying an astonishing breadth of fascinating material. Clive Wynne and Monique Udell are to be congratulated for writing a book that is unusually clear and delightfully engaging." - John Pearce, Professor of Psychology, Cardiff University, UK

"This is the best undergraduate comparative cognition text book that I have found on the market. It is readable yet thorough and importantly uses the content to emphasize critical thinking. The second edition picks up well where the first edition left off." - Thomas Zentall, Professor of Psychology, University of Kentucky, USA

"There are several books on animal cognition, so how does this one stand out? It clearly uses an experimental psychology approach to animal thinking and, despite the addition of evolution in the subtitle, it is mostly evolutionary based." - Choice
