Book Description

9 April 2012
Behind the Dolphin Smile is the heart-felt true story of an animal lover who dedicated his life to studying and training dolphins, but in the process discovered that he ultimately needed to set them free. Ric O'Barry shares his journey with dolphins and other sea mammals in this captivating autobiographical look back at his years as a dolphin trainer for aquatic theme parks, movies, and television. Also included is a preface relaying a first-hand account of his adventures filming the 2010 Academy Award-winning documentary The Cove, which covertly uncovered Japan's inhumane dolphin-hunting practices. O'Barry, a successful animal trainer who had had everything--money, flashy cars, pretty women--came to realize that dolphins were easy to train, not because of his great talent, but because they possessed great intelligence, and that keeping them in captivity was cruel and morally wrong. O'Barry now dedicates his life to stopping the exploitation of these exceptional mammals by retraining them to return to their natural habitats.

4.0 out of 5 stars Save the dolphins 12 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I recently watched the documentary 'The Cove' and was sadden and horrified by the revealing images. I was left wanting to help, to learn more about dolphins and Ric O'Barry, so I purchased this book. I read the book in two days as I found it an easy read and enjoyable. A lot of the content of this book covers Ric's work on the TV show 'Flipper' and highlighted to me the intelligence of these beautiful marine mammals - and more importantly - the cruelty of capturing dolphins.

I have respect for Ric O'Barry and the work he now carries out saving dolphins from around the world. After reading this book I am feeling motivated to make a change and to do anything in my power to keep dolphins and whales in the wild where they belong.
