When Elephants Weep by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson
Book DescriptionFor more than 100 years, scientists have denied that animals experience emotions, yet this remarkable and ground breaking book proves what animal-lovers have known to be true: wolves, tigers, giraffes, elephants and many other creatures exhibit all kinds of feelings - hope, fear, shame, love, compassion. From Ola, the irritable whale, to Toto, the chimpanzee who nursed his owner back to health, this book collects together for the first time a vast range of case histories which show the extraordinary complexity of the animal world, and the tumult of emotions that govern it.

"It's a challenge to create transformative moments with books, but [Masson] does it."-Susan Salter Reynolds, Los Angeles Times
UK Kirkus Review » Most people readily believe that their pet has feelings. They not only believe it but seem to have constant evidence of it before their eyes. However, most modern scientists disagree with this view and dismiss the 'evidence' as invalid anthropomorphism. Full of anecdotes and psychological insight, this absorbing book from the author of Dogs Never Lie About Love opens a door that has been firmly closed in the academic world for many years and, in so doing, makes a compelling argument for animal sensibility. (Kirkus UK)
