Are humans the only cultural species on Earth? Or do animals actually have far more in common than with us than we would like to believe?
In this book, leading primatologist Frans de Waal argues that animals are capable of developing their own sophisticated forms of culture, learning from each other to maintain complex societies. Ranging from sushi restaurants to animal art, quarrelsome monkeys to teeth-cleaning orangutans, this ground-breaking study exposes the shared roots of human and animal behaviour, and will challenge our most basic assumptions about who we are.
