This book is especially useful for owners of cats, dogs and ferrets, because it helps understand why and how animals play, so helps owners to enjoy their pets' company. The book brings together findings from different disciplines, such as ethology and neurobiology. It can be quite technical in parts, but is very well set out, which makes it relatively easy for a non-specialist to understand. It is designed for people studying courses related to animal behaviour, but is a delight for any pet owner who wants to learn more to understand their pet. It's also good value for the insights that it offers.
