The book would give a line to reference to some extraordinary animal but then would never explain further. In the few places where it did go into more detail, the writing became overly technical and heavy.
It does though cover too many small factoids at times, never getting into the more nitty details. It could have done better by choosing a few select stories and showing how they paint the bigger picture and its importance in undertsanding this aspect of animal lives, rather than just loading up a plethora of facts to do that, which at time read a bit too fragmented.
I fear that this overload will leave me forgetting large parts of the book, and leave me with only a slight understanding of how all this relates to the animal world and its links to humanity. All in all worth a read but dont expect too much.
