Michael Archinal is not just a well-known Australian vet. He is a passionate animal lover and devoted owner of pets. He travels Australia and the world looking at how we interact with animals and what we can learn from observing animal behaviour. His conclusion is this: animals can teach us how to become better at being human in all sort of ways. Animals know when to rest, how to eat right, how to socialise, and how to organise a hierarchy. They know how to be in the moment, love the one you're with, and bond unconditionally with the pack. Michael draws on a large body of research that proves animals enrich our lives in every possible way, then interweaves the science with delightful stories from his decades of veterinarian practice. There are chapters on animals teaching us by example to become better at: dealing with stress, loving more, using our instincts, working smarter, helping children exercise, and eating well.
