Editorial Reviews

Praise for the first edition: "This book communicates the intriguing facts about animal cognition, and how fascinating it can be to investigate animal minds, without talking down to the reader, exaggerating animals' mental capacities, or implying that outstanding questions have been answered...A very unusual combination." - Professor Cecilia Heyes, University College London, UK"Wynne writes clearly, engages the reader well, and gives lots of examples and anecdotes but does not sacrifice rigour." - Professor Michael Corballis, University of Auckland, New Zealand"Extremely readable, particularly for undergraduates...the first book of its kind that is well-suited for an advanced undergraduate course rather than for a graduate course." - Professor Tom Zentall, University of Kentucky, USA"An excellent introduction to animal cognition...Coverage is impressively thorough...Wynne has a delightfully engaging, informal style. It is clear that the author enjoys what he is writing about, and this enjoyment is readily conveyed to the reader." - Professor John Pearce, Cardiff University, UK "There are several books on animal cognition, so how does this one stand out? It clearly uses an experimental psychology approach to animal thinking and, despite the addition of evolution in the subtitle, it is mostly evolutionary based." - Choice
