9781608682195: Why Dogs Hump and Bees Get Depressed: The Fascinating Science of Animal Intelligence, Emotions, Friendship, and Conservation

In 2009, Marc Bekoff was asked to write on animal emotions for Psychology Today. Some 500 popular, jargon-free essays later, the field of anthrozoology — the study of human-animal relationships — has grown exponentially, as have scientific data showing how smart and emotional nonhuman animals are. Here Bekoff offers selected essays that showcase the fascinating cognitive abilities of other animals as well as their empathy, compassion, grief, humor, joy, and love. Humpback whales protect gray whales from orca attacks, combat dogs and other animals suffer from PTSD, and chickens, rats, and mice display empathy. This collection is both an updated sequel to Bekoff ’s popular book The Emotional Lives of Animals and a call to begin the important work of rewilding” ourselves and changing the way we treat other animals.

Review:

Why Dogs Hump and Bees Get Depressed (as the title implies) is a top scientist’s brilliantly eccentric and eclectic look at what we know about animal intelligence, emotions, and behavior. The scope is encyclopedic, the subject inspired, the style personal, and the tone impassioned. Read this book for pleasure and inspiration; keep it for information.”
Dale Peterson, author of Giraffe Reflections, The Moral Lives of Animals, and Jane Goodall: The Woman Who Redefined Man

A unique, witty, and thoroughly researched collection of essays, Why Dogs Hump and Bees Get Depressed is an entertaining and informative read for the general public and experts alike. Marc Bekoff’s breadth of knowledge about animal behavior is staggering. Bravo to Bekoff for making it so enjoyable to learn about the cognitive, emotional, and moral lives of the animals with whom we share our homes and our magnificent planet.”
Brian Hare, PhD, and Vanessa Woods, New York Times bestselling authors of The Genius of Dogs

A thoughtful and illuminating collection of essays about the animal mind — certain to provoke discussion about our relationship with our fellow animals.”
Virginia Morell, author of Animal Wise: How We Know Animals Think and Feel

Marc Bekoff’s wide-ranging books are unfailingly scholarly, entertaining, insightful, and educational.”
Ingrid E. Newkirk, president of PETA

Dr. Marc Bekoff has, in his characteristically brilliant, accessible, eclectic, and compassionate style, rendered unequivocally clear nothing less than an animal protection manifesto that is likely to resonate for years.”
Michael Charles Tobias, PhD, president of the Dancing Star Foundation
