Natural History & Environment - Published: 26/Jul/2017 - ISBN: 9781783783069

Based on research on a range of animals, including crows, dolphins, parrots, sheep, wasps, bats, whales, and, of course, chimpanzees and bonobos, Frans de Waal explores the scope and depth of animal intelligence, revealing how we have grossly underestimated non-human brains. He overturns the view of animals as stimulus-response beings and opens our eyes to their complex and intricate minds. Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are? challenges assumptions about animal - and human - intelligence.
