Product description

Review

“In this sparkling, superbly illustrated summation of the cognitive science, ethology and hot debates, Emery encapsulates the ‘featured ape’.”
(Nature)

Emery has brought this research together in a hugely accessible popular science book, while still maintaining the level of critical thought and intellectual novelty that one would expect from one of the leading researchers in the field.”
(Current Biology)

“Chapters on spatial memory, communication, cultural intelligence, tool use and the sense of self provide a great introduction to the subject in an accessible and engaging manner.”
(BBC Wildlife)

"An in-depth look at recent research and fascinating lab experiments, the book published by Ivy Press overturns any notion that birds are somehow dumb. Instead, it argues with an overwhelming amount of evidence that a number of bird species should be considered more as “feathered apes”".
(Jeremy Hance The Guardian 2016-11-05)
