Some days one can't help hating humanity. On those days I strongly recommend this book full of well-verified stories about various non-humans who demonstrate empathy and creativity and save the lives of humans, whether the humans deserve it or not. That many of these fabulous critters are either wild or rescued just makes the whole thing that much better. Also, I like the illustrations. And I really like that Campbell never overstates the case for what the critters in question may have been thinking or feeling. He just reports the facts. Facts which make it abundantly clear that all social animals share an inclination to help, even at great personal risk, regardless of the species in trouble.

The most positive and affirming book I've read this year. These animals make me want to be a better human.
