from animals how got used to think? And why to remember ours with them similarity? We offer a selection of books about psychology of animals and people who help to find answers.

Conrad Lorentz "The person finds the friend"

Conrad Lorentz is the Austrian scientist, one of founders of ethology, the Nobel Prize laureate. However his books are written in very simple, living language and are clear to any person whom the behavior and psychology of animals interests.

"The person finds
the friend" — probably, the most famous book by Lorentz devoted to animals partners: to dogs and cats. You learn from where roots of dog devotion "grow" whether animals have a conscience and why expression "cat's nature" is unfair. And, besides, derive a lot of pleasure and for certain more than once you will smile.

Conrad Lorentz "Ring of the tsar Solomon"

If was pleasant to you the book "The Person Finds the Friend", safely undertake this. What relation some ancient tsar has to animals, you ask. The most direct! There is a legend that the tsar Solomon could understand language of animals. However whether this surprising ability is destiny of wizards, magicians and magicians? At all not! It appears, we can learn it too. It is necessary only to be able to watch that animals try to tell us about themselves and the life. Lorentz managed it, and, having read his book, you will be able to be convinced of it.

Conrad Lorentz "Aggression, or So-called evil"

This book is not too similar to previous. It is written in more language of science and deeper. In it such phenomenon as aggression, from the different parties is analyzed: biological, social and philosophical. The author together with the reader looks for answers to questions of what is aggression from where it undertakes and is it really bad how we got used to think? If madam Evolyution thought up aggression, so for something it was necessary.

Victor Dolnik "Disobedient child of the biosphere. Conversations about behavior of the person in the company of birds, animals and children"

So the book — a collection of articles of the biologist Victor Dolnik. It about that from where our strange addictions why we laugh at monkeys (a spoiler undertake: because they to horror are similar to us!) to what instincts the sexual behavior submits and as instincts and reason are connected.
One delighted with the book, others are ready to challenge the point of view of the author to blue in the face. Well, you have a chance to make the opinion on as far as the book is scientific and fair in relation to people and animals.

Karen Pryor "You do not growl on a dog"

Karen Pryor is the talented scientist, the expert in two areas (biology of marine mammals and behavioural physiology). Training dolphins, she in the sixties developed the 20th centuries a technique of nonviolent training which she applied on dogs, horses and … people later. Yes, in public too! Because we not so differ from those who got used to be considered "smaller brothers".

This book about training anyone, the pet or, to anything. You learn how to make so that the cat did not attempt upon a kitchen table, and the beloved grandmother did not grumble, and about why punishment — not the best method of interaction with somebody, and encouragement where is more effective. Eventually, as Karen Pryor claims, children can be brought only to the one who is capable to teach a chicken to dance — you will not be able to force a little baby bird.
