Zoobiquity by Barbara Natterson-Horowitz.. Zoo stories to pass the time while you're waiting to hear the loons in the evening. We're not just talking healing science based on animal research here (which is bad, people), but mapping deep effects of emotion and behavior in animals to better understand ourselves and them. Best title of 2012 so far, too.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"Fascinating reading about the similarities in both the physiology and behavior of people and animals."

Temple Grandin, Ph.D.

"If common ancestors with worms, fish, and apes lie in our past, then Zoobiquity points the way to our future. The connections we share with the rest of life on our planet are a source of beauty and, in Natterson-Horowitz and Bowers’ luminous new account, the inspiration for an emerging and powerful approach to human health. Zoobiquity is a book that explodes barriers and myths all in the purpose of bettering the human condition."
