One of the comments we received after our recent newsletters about summer reading suggestions was that, instead of light reading, this customer said she wanted to totally immerse herself in a subject. Basically, the bigger the better and that more comprehensive would be better than less. Well, we do have a number of highly recommended books that fit the bill, but they are not cheap, they might put you over the weight limit on your luggage, but if you are game, we aim to please. You will return from vacation (or your backyard hammock) an expert! Here are some choices:

Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are? by Frans De Waal. What separates your mind from an animals? Maybe you think its your ability to design tools, your sense of self, or your grasp of past and future - all traits that have helped us define ourselves as the planets preeminent species. But in recent decades, these claims have eroded, or even been disproven outright, by a revolution in the study of animal cognition. Take the way octopuses use coconut shells as tools; elephants that classify humans by age, gender, and language; or Ayumu, the young male chimpanzee at Kyoto University whose flash memory puts that of humans to shame. Based on research involving crows, dolphins, parrots, sheep, wasps, bats, whales, and of course chimpanzees and bonobos, Frans de Waal explores both the scope and the depth of animal intelligence. He offers a firsthand account of how science has stood traditional behaviorism on its head by revealing how smart animals really are, and how weve underestimated their abilities for too long.
