This was an incredible book that I read when I was an adolescent. I look back sometimes and wonder what kind of child would read a book like this, but later when I was at a Doreen Virtue workshop to become an Angel Therapist and swimming in the Pacific Ocean with 40 spinner dolphins, I clearly understood that when I was young, I was being activated to the energy and in communion with the dolphins. Now, I am blessed with Dolphin Medicine.

I highly recommend any of John C. Lilly's work!

I couldn't actually finish this book as it horrified me. It is a vivisectionist's tale. It heartens me that perhaps times are changing for Dolphins kept in captivity, and one day, if not now, this book will be seen as a document of atrocities rather than anything scientific.
Fantastic insights about the relationship of intelligence between species. Recommended for anyone who is trying to get an outside perspective on how intelligence is measured.
