This book is an absolute must-read for anybody with an interest in contemporary psychology and/or open questions concerning the complex relationship between Man and the other animals.

A few very strange reviews have been written about this book, taking some kind of moral stance and judging not the book, but our relationship to animals from some moral point of view! Thus, the book/the author get in part mediocre ratings as a sanction, in some way, for mankind’s attitude towards animals!! This is, obviously, completely besides the point (to say the least), and does little justice to a very remarkable scientific (and literary) achievement. The book is very interesting, strongly backed by indisputable scientific work and references, and a pleasure to read, as the author explains without ever lecturing, and even often manages to be quite entertaining.

This book is very 'konsequent' and essentially 'sachlich' (to use German adjectives with hardly any English equivalent), meaning it may come across, on the whole, as a bit dry. But this makes the demonstration and the contents all the more intelligible and stringent.

Mankind is impossibly predictable...

It burn a ruinous blood, ever violent...

The wild kingdom is harmonious, intuitive...

The great beasts do not wage organized war...

The egret does not commit suicide...

The Alaskan Grizzly does not have murder on its mind...

The Bengal Tiger does not engage in arson...

The condor does not strafe chemical agents on its fellows...

You're not going to see a monkey on Hollywood and Dead Vine Streets...

Nodding out in the gutter, a needle in his arm...

Man destroys mindlessly...

The beasts are far, far advanced of man...

Because beasts simply live...
