Review

Extremely interesting, as I am endlessly fascinated with animal, especially avian and notably corvid intelligence; only sometimes it was a bit lacking in rigour, or at least demonstrating rigour. Additionally, there were a few mentions of “this part of the brain causes this behaviour” that seemed a bit odd, providing some details of underlying neurology and talking about behaviour but never really explaining how the whole neurobiology fits together—omitting, as it were, the middle layer.
