Summary
This book draws on evidence from across the world to show, for the first time, how astonishingly similar humans and other animals are when it comes to their emotional wellbeing. Charles Darwin developed his evolutionary theories by studying Galapagos finches and fancy pigeons ; Alfred Russell Wallace investigated creatures in the Malay Archipelago. Laurel Braitman got her lessons closer to home by watching her dog. Oliver snapped at flies that only he could see, suffered from debilitating separation anxiety, was prone to aggression, and may even have attempted suicide. Braitman's experiences with Oliver made her acknowledge a starling connection: nonhuman animals can lose their minds. And when they do, it often looks a lot like human mental illness
