Are You Smarter Than A Chimpanzee? (Ebook)

Test yourself against the amazing minds of animals

Ben Ambridge

Now in paperback, the author of international psychological sensation Psy-Q takes us inside the minds of animals

Animal science is bizarre and wonderful. At the extreme end of zoology, psychologists are designing personality tests for dogs and logic problems for pigeons. They're giving fish spatial reasoning problems and asking cockatoos to keep a beat.

Now, through dozens of interactive puzzles, IQ tests and quizzes, Are You Smarter Than a Chimpanzee? lets you test yourself against the best nature has to offer. So: are you more than a match for a marmoset? Or a bit of a birdbrain?

Based on real, cutting-edge science and debunking common myths about animals, Are You Smarter Than a Chimpanzee? will make you question your assumptions about our place in the animal kingdom - and, finally, explain the real difference between dog-people and cat-people.

Reviews for Are You Smarter Than A Chimpanzee?

'Highly recommended! Enormously fun, full of fascinating oddities and genuinely thought-provoking'

Alex Boese, author of Elephants on Acid 

'Delightful ... Ambridge uses a great deal of British wit to further our understanding of who we are by fleshing out our connections to other inhabitants of the animal kingdom'

Tom Gilovich, author of The Wisest One In The Room 

'Ambridge has a trickster's charm of "How did he do that?" presentation and a stage magician's "Hey presto!" delight in revelation'

 The Times

'Insightful and humorous ... one of the most interesting books we've read all year'
