Anmeldelser

«Jackie Higgins’s lyrical, literate style will charm you while her book stuns your imagination with strange, other-worldly truths.»

Richard Dawkins

«Sentient is a tour de force of popular science, leading the reader on a whistle-stop tour of the natural world, to show the fascinating parallels between animal and human senses.»

Stephen Moss, naturalist and author

«Jackie Higgins puts a mirror up to the natural world so we can sense ourselves through our animal relatives. I love this book because it reminds me of our wildness.»

Craig Foster, filmmaker and subject of the Oscar-winning documentary, <i>My Octopus Teacher</i>

«Extraordinarily rich in detail; there is a miracle on every page.»

Scott Weidensaul, author of <i>A World on the Wing</i>

«Educational, ground-breaking and meticulously well-researched.»

Reaction Life Book Digest

«Higgins delivers a series of delicious lessons in what it is to be sensate, and shows how our own brains can emulate the miraculous feat of the animals with whom we share this fragile planet.»

Philip Hoare, Samuel Johnson Prize-winning author of <i>Leviathan </i>and <i>Albert and the Whale</i

«I loved Sentient, it's filled with the wonder of knowing and the infinite surprises of nature.»

Stephen Rutt, author of <i>The Seafarers</i> and <i>Wintering </i>

«Brimming with fascinating, frequently delightful and occasionally freaky trivia this is an entertaining, gentle and easily digestible read with some important and intriguing ideas at its core.»

Louder Than War

«The first rule of popular science is to reveal the wonder and mystery of the world. For that reason, Sentient, written by photographer and wildlife film-maker Jackie Higgins, is my personal pick of the year»

Simon Ings, New Scientist Best Books of the Year

«Spellbinding . . . More than any other book, [Sentient] has made me think differently about the world this year.»

Alec Russell, Financial Times Best Books of the Year

«Higgins makes popular science accessible.»

Saskia Baron, Observer

«Jackie Higgins’s eye-opening account of the often bizarre or superhuman sensory systems of other animals, from Hades-dwellers to Arctic owls.»

<font face="verdana, tahoma"><span>Steven Poole</span></font>, Telegraph Best New Science Books

«Gripping . . . Thanks to Higgins' flair for storytelling, Sentient successfully informs us about our own senses by exploring those of animals.»

Barbara J. King, TLS
