Reviews

From the book reviews:

“In describing the basic tenets of comparative anatomy and physiology of human and nonhuman animals, this book is a collaborative interdisciplinary enterprise to investigate and improve all types of human-animal relationships and interactions. … it is an enlightening and engaging read for any student of evolution, medicine, and the natural sciences. … This is a pleasure to read and reminds us that humans and nonhuman animals share much of our anatomy and physiology.” (Julia K. Whittington, Doody’s Book Reviews, January, 2015)
