WHEN ELEPHANTS WEEP: THE EMOTIONAL LIVES OF ANIMALS by
Jeffrey M. Masson and Susan McCarthy (audio) -- 20% OFF THE RETAIL PRICE
For over 100 years a chasm has separated animal lovers--who know that their dog, cat, horse,
or parrot have complex emotional lives--and scientists, to whom attributing any emotions to
animals has been equivalent to heresy. And while a new generation of scientists has begun
chipping away at this traditional taboo, no one book has yet gathered all the available
information into an engaging and authorative portrait of animals' emotional lives. Not, that
is, until now.
When Elephants Weep is the first book since Darwin's to explore the full range of emotions
throughout the animal kingdom. Meet Siri, the Indian elephant, whose expressive sketches
have been praised by artists Willem and Elaine de Kooning. Meet Koko, a bashful gorilla
proficient in sign language who loves to play house with dolls--but only when no one is
looking--and Alex, an African grey parrot with an astonishing vocabulary, who when left at
the veterinarian's office, shrieked, "Come here! I love you. I'm sorry. I want to go back."
Sprinkled with insights from biologists, animal behaviorists, pet owners and animal trainers,
When Elephants Weep will permanently change and enrich the way you look at animals.
