"With fascinating insight, impeccable research, and captivating writing, controversial psychoanalyst Jeffrey Masson, a new father himself, showcases the extraordinary behaviour of outstanding fathers in the animal kingdom. From the emperor penguin, who incubates the eggs of his young by carrying them around on his feet for two months, to the sea-horse, the only male animal that gives birth to its young. Mason also examines nature's worst fathers; lions, bears, and humans. A book that will forever change our perceptions of parenthood and love."

"A valuable and fascinating contribution to the debate on man's relation to nature. Even for those who disagree, the wit of Jeffrey Masson's argument and the thousand little facts and anecdotes he serves with it make this book a pleasure." -- Mark Kurlansky, Author of Cod "Lessons in fatherhood, challengingly and devastatingly told" * Kirkus Reviews *
