Beyond Words:

Latest Review


Check out the new review in the New York Review of Books. Here’s what they say about Carl Safina’s latest book, Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel:

“BEYOND WORDS is gloriously written….[it] will have a deep impact on many readers, for it elevates our relationships with animals to a higher plane….Along with Darwin’s Origin and Richard Dawkins’s Selfish Gene, BEYOND WORDS marks a major milestone in our evolving understanding of our place in nature.  Indeed it has the potential to change our relationship with the natural world.”
