THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERI wanted to know what they were experiencing, and why to us they feel so compelling, and so close.

This time I allowed myself to ask them the question that for a scientist was forbidden fruit: Who are you?Weaving decades of field observations with exciting new discoveries about the brain, Carl Safina's landmark book offers an intimate view of animal behavior to challenge the fixed boundary between humans and animals.

Travelling to the threatened landscape of Kenya to witness struggling elephant families work out how to survive poaching and drought, then on to Yellowstone National Park to observe wolves sort out the aftermath of one pack's personal tragedy, the book finally plunges into the astonishingly peaceful society of killer whales living in the crystalline waters of the Pacific Northwest.

Beyond Words brings forth powerful and illuminating insight into the unique personalities of animals through extraordinary stories of animal joy, grief, jealousy, anger, and love.

The similarity between human and nonhuman consciousness, self-awareness and empathy calls us to re-evaluate how we interact with animals.

Wise, passionate, and eye-opening at every turn, Beyond Words is ultimately a graceful examination of humanity's place in the world.
