Katharina  Jakob - Why Whales Know Foreign Languages


Animalistically intelligent: how animals make plans, learn and pass on what they know

Orcas that learn the language of dolphins, or squirrels that can describe approaching human beings down to the colour of their T-shirts by whistling: animals think, plan and communicate, use tools and adapt them to their own needs, are altruistic, imagine the future – and some are even aware of their ego.

Amazing? Yes, but true! Katharina Jakob's impressive tales from the unknown world of animals contain the latest scientific insights – amazing and entertaining.

"Seldom have I had so much knowledge, motivation, and inspirations in such a convincing and empathetic way granted, rather more as a gift, to me!"
