    So, here s what I expected a touching memoir about the trials and tribulations and joys and moments of wonder of working closely with a remarkable creature.I ve heard it said that children often have an easier time bonding with animals than adults If I were going to theorize, I d say that maybe it s because although animals may have an inner life that resembles that of humans Alex certainly seemed to it s not often as developed in animals They re too busy surviving to spend much t So, here s what I expected a touching memoir about the trials and tribulations and joys and moments of wonder of working closely with a remarkable creature.I ve heard it said that children often ha...

    I loved it I tried to read The Alex Studies years ago, but it was so heavy on the scientific detail and analysis that I lost interest This is written for the non scientist with such a lovely, human voice As a long time bird lover who is very aware of how intelligent birds can be, I still found my mouth literally dropping open in surprise at some of the intellectual feats Alex accomplished He could add He could sound out words And I laughed out loud at some of the anecdotes she shares, pa I loved it I tried to read The Alex Studies years ago, but it was so heavy on the scientific detail and analysis that I lost interest This is written for the non scientist with such a lovely, human voice As a long time bird lover who is very aware of how intelligent birds can be, I still found my mouth literally dropping open in ...

    Much enjoyed learning about the capacity of animals to learn and about their intrinsic unique personalities Also appreciated the author s account of being a woman scientist having to fight gender prejudices and those against animals.

    I m on p.40 and very surprised that the author is taking so long to get into her and Alex s story These 40 pages could have been condensed into an Introduction.Okay, I finished this And once Dr Pepperberg got past talking about herself, Alex came to life The degree of communication that he developed with human language was astounding just one example of how little humans have credited the ability of other species to communicate among themselves, let along cross species.Overall, the book wa I m on p.40 and very surprised that the author is taking so long to get into her and Alex s story These 40 pages could have been condensed into an Introduction.Okay, I finished this And once Dr Pepperberg got past talking about herself, Alex came to life The degree of communication that he developed with human language was astounding just one example of how little humans have credited the ability of other species to communicate am...

    I m personally not a bird person, but I started listening to the audiobook version of this book mainly because it was available from my library, but also because a co worker has a 2 year old African grey parrot named Gracie After hearing tales from him about his bird child that sound very similar to tales I tell of my 2 year old human child, I thought...

    A lot has been said about Pepperberg and her research, but what touched me was that Pepperberg wanted so much to prove her scientific chops that she often forced herself to keep an emotional distance from her beloved parrot while he was alive This book is in large part an ou...
