When a pig saves a drowning child, a parrot invites a wild bird over for dinner, and a hyena listens to chamber music -- what are they trying to do? What are they feeling? In short, can animals think? Scientists have tried to get at the answer to this absorbing question for decades. Now Eugene Linden, who has covered their efforts as a writer and journalist, turns the question on its head and looks at what animals reveal about their intelligence and their emotions through their natural reactions to the people and creatures around them.
