    Readers note the author is a professor of Sanskrit and a trained Freudian analyst who has a passion for animals and exploring our relationships to animals from a philosophical point of view He is not a practicing biologist, animal behaviorist, or any other ist within the zoological anthropological realm I believe his intent is to help make this area of sciencecompelling, interesting, and accessibl

    While I agree with the principles in this book, that s all I agree with There are several reasons.First and most obvious to many who read it he has a huge amount of anger towards scientists I can appreciate this to a large extent, animals have been and are still used in experiments which are horrible His anger has transcended the normal boundaries to become fanatical The problem with this is twofold On the one hand
