Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson's groundbreaking When Elephants Weep explored emotions in the animal kingdom, particularly from animals in the wild. Now, he reveals startling evidence that barnyard creatures have complex feelings too - among them, love, loyalty, friendship, sadness, grief, and sorrow.

Weaving history, literature, science, and his own vivid experiences observing pigs, cows, sheep, goats, and chickens, Masson bears witness to the emotions and intelligence of these remarkable animals, each unique with distinct qualities. Shattering the abhorrent myth of the dumb animal without feelings, Jeffrey Masson has written a revolutionary book that is sure to stir human emotions far and wide. Download and start listening now!

    " This was a book club selection and I think the person who picked it was expecting something like Animal Farm or Charlotte's Web or even Babe...it wasn't. It was one blurb a bout a particular animal somewhere in the world after another and how even cruelty free farms are cruel. I hated it. "

    " It was interesting, but a little too animal-rights-activist for me. "

    " This is not at all what I was expecting from the warm and fuzzy title. It is moralistic, and academic in the sense that it is full of references. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it. I was expecting anecdotal tales about animals being anthromophized. I could not have been further from the real content. It is about how humans treat animals (poorly in this author's opinion.) I think it is best for vegetarians. "
