Humans are not the only species with the capacity for love, hate, fear, shame, guilt, joy, and empathy, and in this winner of the PEN / E.O. Wilson Literary Science Writing Award, Frans de Waal leads a fascinating exploration of the rich emotional lives of animals. Illustrated with 16 pages of black and white illustrations, this book tells the stories of dogs "adopting" the injuries of their companions, rats helping fellow rats in distress, elephants revisiting the bones of their loved ones; and Mama, a chimpanzee matriarch who formed a deep bond with biologist Jan van Hooff.

"A captivating and big-hearted book, full of compassion and brimming with insights about the lives of animals, including human ones."—Yuval Noah Harari
