Summary

Wild elephants walking along a trail stop and spontaneously try to  
protect and assist a weak and dying fellow elephant. Laboratory rats,  
finding other rats caged nearby in distressing circumstances, proceed to 
 rescue them. A chimpanzee in a zoo loses his own life trying to save an 
 unrelated infant who has fallen into a watery moat.  
 The  
examples above and many others, argues Dale Peterson, show that our  
fellow creatures have powerful impulses toward cooperation, generosity,  
and fairness. Yet it is commonly held that we Homo sapiens are the only  
animals with a moral sense-that we are somehow above and apart from our  
fellow creatures.  
 This rigorous and stimulating book challenges  
that notion, and it shows the profound connections-the moral  
continuum-that link humans to many other species. Peterson shows how  
much animal behavior follows principles embodied in humanity's ancient  
moral codes, from the Ten Commandments to the New Testament.  
Understanding the moral lives of animals offers new insight into our  
own.

    Jonathan Trefoil's boss is unhinged, his relationship baffling and his apartment just the wrong side of legal. His girlfriend wants to marry someone just like him – only richer and more organised with a different sense of humour.  
     
    On the plus side, his two flatmates are determined to fix his life – or possibly to destroy it altogether. It's difficult to be certain as they only speak dog. 
     
    Poor Jonathan. He doesn't remember life being this confusing back in the good old days before everyone expected him to act like a person. But one thing he knows for sure: if he can make it in New York City, he can make it anywhere.  
     
    Will he get out of advertising, meet the girl of his dreams and figure out the gender of his secret crush?   
     
    Given how it's going so far, probably not.
