Chasing Doctor Dolittle: Learning the Language of Animals
by Con Slobodchikoff
St. Martin's Press, 2012 (($25.99))

A biologist at the University of Northern Arizona, Slobodchikoff has been interested in language from the time he arrived in the U.S. as a Russian-speaking boy. In this book, he takes readers through fascinating studies of how honeybees, prairie dogs, squid and many other species communicate and makes the case that humans' language abilities are no exception in the animal world.
