About the Author:

Frans de Waal, PhD, a world-renowned primitologist and one of Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People, is the author of several books, including a winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Award.

Review:

“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, Washington Post

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

“Engaging and informative.”
- 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

“Thoroughly engaging, remarkably informative, and deeply insightful.... de Waal teaches readers as much about humankind as he does about our nonhuman relatives.”
- Boxed, Starred Review, Publishers Weekly

“Amazing.... The clarity of [De Waal’s] writing makes for a highly readable book.... a trip to the zoo may never be the same.”
- Starred Review, Kirkus

“Insightful and fascinating....de Waal fans and general readers interested in the field of animal cognition will be delighted.”
- Starred Review, Library Journal

“This is a remarkable book by a remarkable scientist. Drawing on a growing body of research including his own, de Waal shows that animals, from elephants and chimpanzees to the lowly invertebrates, are not only smarter than we thought, but also engaged in forms of thought we have only begun to understand.”
- Edward O. Wilson, University Professor Emeritus, Harvard University

Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are? will completely change your perceptions of the abilities of animals. This book takes the reader on a fascinating journey of discovery into the world of animal problem-solving.”
- Temple Grandin, author of Animals in Translation and Animals Make Us Human
