    I give this an objective four stars, even though for me personally it probably rated slightly less through no fault of the author or the work, simply because I am already really familiar with much of what she presents here, and also because it is now 20 years on out of date with current research into animal minds That said, I think Dawkins does a great job of putting together the evidence for animal consciousness in a scientific way trying to argue past both those sceptics who want to deny the existence of animal consciousness altogether though I m not sure how many of them there still are today and those who would excessively anthropomorphise animal experience She presents possible evidence, then cuts through it with sceptical claims to try and reveal what remains as a solid foundation for the claims that there is something it is like to be many animals She avoids drawing explicit ethical conclusions, but it is clear that she thinks that if there is evidence for conscious experience in animals, that should influence how we treat them something I would agree with I think this is a great book for people with a general interest in animal minds.

    Good discussion, scientifically accurate engaging read

    Excellent, and well argued I think she makes one logical slip, though, and I slightly disagree with her conclusion because of that.
