    1. Plenty to feed the debate on animals, sentience and evolution of species as well as behaviours. We look at various animals and how humans are like or not like them in inherited or learned behaviours; pretty similar, is the message. Experiments in social behaviour of chimps are cited, such as being rewarded for a task with either carrot or grape, and protesting if they only got the carrot or if they could see another chimp only getting carrot when they got a grape. Lents calls this intolerance of [...]

    2. Not So Different by Nathan Lents is one of the best science, nature books I have read in the last 40 years. If I had to buy one book for a friend to explain what I wanted them to know about animals, (how they feel, think, react, and why), and how they are so much like we areis is that book. The book is so detailed yet reads like a gentle novel. It has its thoughtful moments, humorous ones, sad ones, and times when I just said, "Wow!". This book is like no other science book, it flows so well and [...]

    3. An engaging and totally accessible exploration of human behavior, its clear connection to animal behavior, and the very practical, biological reasons we do so many of the things we do. Just because we're animals with all sorts of constructs (clothing, houses, economies, technology, etc.) doesn't mean we're done playing Survival of the Fittest. Now we just play the home version.The specific examples of behavior of different animals are really interesting, and often fun to read. When juxtaposed wi [...]

    4. Thank you to Netgalley and Columbia University Press for an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest reviewWhat defines humanity? Many things have been said already, and I am not a specialist by any means.It has been said that the use of tools is one of the exclusives of mankind, however anyone with National Geographic Channel can recall images of chimps using sticks to catch ants in logs, or even otters using rocks to open more stubborn clams.Emotions are what defines humanity many people say [...]

    5. As humans are a different day in creation than all the other animals, this ignorant finds "human nature" in everything. Never mind that all this is speculation and so far humans have a hard time communicating with other humans, Nathan Lents is so deranged he can spell out what and more important why the animals are doing this and that. And, obvious, they have quite human-like reasons, but the fact that the author is also human is no reason for bias.
