Kidnapping WOULD MOST DEFINITELY Have been a trigger that would have destroyed the date, not made him laugh.

This e-book was provided to me for review. It was well worth reading again. Excellent job Sonia. " School Library Journal, May 2011"This amusing follow-up to Zoomer features very animated canine characters, peppy prose, and textured illustrations filled with scrutiny-inviting details. It's as if I can't quite remember that all the hours of work I put in filming segments and writing cookbooks is actually meant to be seen by the public.

the great apes, who, because of their greater intelligence, are naturally assumed to have more to teach us, both about other primates and about humans as well.Dario Maestripieri thinks it is high time we shelve that misperception, and with Macachiavellian Intelligence he gives rhesus macaques their rightful turn in the spotlight. The product of more than twenty years studying these fascinating creatures, Macachiavellian Intelligence caricatures a society that is as much human as monkey, with hierarchies and power struggles that would impress Machiavelli himself. High-status macaques, for instance, maintain their rank through deft uses of violence and manipulation, while altruism is almost unknown and relationships are perpetually subject to the cruel laws of the market. Throughout this eye-opening account, Maestripieri weds his thorough knowledge of macaque behavior to his abiding fascination with human society and motivations. The result is a book unlike any other, one that draws on economics as much as evolutionary biology, politics as much as primatology.Rife with unexpected connections and peppered with fascinating anecdotes, Macachiavellian Intelligence has as much to teach us about humans as it does about macaques, presenting a wry, rational, and wholly surprising view of our humanity as seen through the monkey in the mirror.
