Companion Animal Psychology Book Club April 2023

"I love this book because it reminds me of our wildness, it reminds me how powerful our sense are, and it celebrates animals and humans in a way that binds us together."--Craig Foster, filmmaker and Academy Award-winner for My Octopus Teacher.

This month, the Animal Book Club is reading Sentient: How Animals Illuminate the Wonder of Our Human Senses by Jackie Higgins. 

From the publisher,

"Perfect for fans of The Soul of an Octopus and The Genius of Birds, this “revelatory book” (Sy Montgomery, New York Times bestselling author) explores how we process the world around us through the lens of the incredible sensory capabilities of thirteen animals, revealing that we are not limited to merely five senses.

There is a scientific revolution stirring in the field of human perception. Research has shown that the extraordinary sensory powers of our animal friends can help us better understand the same powers that lie dormant within us.

From the harlequin mantis shrimp with its ability to see a vast range of colors, to the bloodhound and its hundreds of millions of scent receptors; from the orb-weaving spider whose eyes recognize not only space but time, to the cheetah whose ears are responsible for its perfect agility, these astonishing animals hold the key to better understanding how we make sense of the world around us."

The book club is open to subscribers to my free Companion Animal Psychology newsletter. You'll get the details as part of your welcome emails. 

Sentient is available from all good bookstores and my Amazon store
