Balcombe convincingly argues that animals are individual beings with a wide range of emotions and feeling. If he is correct - and I believe he is - it follows that we must grapple with the ethical consequences of his important insights. Well, that time has come, and here is that book. Jonathan Balcombe exposes this myth and presents fishes, with other animals, as sensitive, social, feeling, marvelous sentient beings. Balcombe's book should be a standard text for students of biology and ethology, and all who care for animals will be informed and inspired.
Fox, veterinarian, newspaper columnist and author of The Boundless Circle: Caring for Creatures and Creation. Balcombe tempts us to consider, more open-mindedly than ever before, the experiences of animals in more ways than traditional science has yet acknowledged, perhaps even imagined.

But humans do not consider that fact that animals feel. They feel pain and pleasure. I learned so much in the book. It is about survival of the happiest. This is for humans and animals. Some animal pleasures are play, food, touch and love. You exerience it when you save a rescue dog or cat. Are they not grateful to you for ever? Watch cats groom themselves. Watch monkeys groom each other.
Yes animals feel pleasure. This is an eye opening book for me. It has made me look an animals in a different light. And it has made me think about the way I treat animals and also how I treat humans. Thank you Jonathan Balcombe for this amazing book. It is well written and easy to read. In my undergraduate education my concentration for my biology degree was in mammalogy, which helped foster a lifelong interest in animal behavior, particularly in lemurs, pangolins, and cats of all shapes and sizes. I have always loved animals and have wondered about how and the degree to which animals feel pleasure and emotions; unfortunately, I usually found only anecdotal information that was not collected in a systematic way.
This book taught me that I was not alone: Despite the difficulties of study in this field, Balcombe has written an accessible yet scientifically important book. Unsurprisingly to animal lovers it shows what we have suspected all along: The reverse is also, of course, true, as anyone who has seen a cat or dog grieve at the loss of a human or animal companion knows intuitively.
I enjoyed the book immensely, and found it to be more substantive and scientifically weighty than I expected. The sources cited are numerous, and provide excellent starting points for further research. I thought the entire book was strong, although some of the conclusions reached in chapter seven, "Touch", seemed a bit tenuous. Second Nature Jonathan Balcombe. What a Fish Knows Jonathan Balcombe.
