Description
For centuries, humans and dolphins have enjoyed a special relationship, evident not just in mythology and folklore but in many documented encounters, and here one of the world's leading experts on dolphin intelligence shows just how smart dolphins really are and why we must protect them. Dolphins are creative and self-aware, Diana Reiss explains, with distinct personalities and the ability to communicate with humans. They craft their own toys, use underwater keyboards, and live in complex societies in the seas. And yet some nations continue to slaughter them indiscriminately. This story of Reiss's encounters and research with dolphins is both a scientific revelation and an emotional one, exposing our terrible mistreatment of the smartest creatures in the sea.

"One comes away from Reiss's book agreeing that 'dolphins are among the smartest creatures on the planet' and that they merit not just our attention but our care and protection."NYTimes
