Fras de Waal

April 26 is a great day for big readers and lovers of animals. The great student of animal behavior, Frans de Waal will greet us with Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals are, which is probably his best and most complete book yet about what he and many of his colleagues believe to be the complex abilities and inner lives of earth’s many species of animals.  Not just bonobos and dolphins, but many species of birds;  dogs and cats;  elephants.  All of you who believe non-humans have inner lives will be delighted with the experimental studies , which indicate just that.
