I loved this book. It is a beautifully read and written examination of animal societies, ranging through denizens of the oceans, social insects, and land mammals, including our closest relatives, chimpanzees and bonobos. The author, Ashley Ward, balances humour, fact, and his personal experiences with animals with a wonderfully deft touch. The book has the quality of a David Attenborough documentary series, with slightly more swearing!
