They discovered what makes dogs individuals with varying capacities for self-control, different value systems, and a complex understanding of human speech. Here Berns explores the fascinating inner lives of wild animals from dolphins and sea lions to the extinct Tasmanian tiger. The team's findings will fundamentally reshape how we think about--and treat--animals."@en ;
