Beautiful Minds explains how and why apes and dolphins are so distantly related yet so cognitively alike and what this teaches us about another large-brained mammal: Homo sapiens. Noting that apes and dolphins have had no common ancestor in nearly 100 million years, Bearzi and Stanford describe the parallel evolution that gave rise to their intelligence.

    " This is a survey and speculation about the convergent evolution that produced arguably the brainiest creatures on the planet. It is well worth reading. "

    " Interesting book although I think it could have been shorter. Worth reading for sure if you are interested in the big brained animals of this earth and about the present research being done. "

    " Stanford and Bearzi, just as they say, "incorporate a respect and sense of stewardship" for the apes and dolphins they study. Both concepts are vividly addressed throughout this informative, eye-opening read. "
