I appreciate much of Narby's direction with this book, but his repetitive writing style is really tiresome. On a quest to find "intelligence" in the animal world, he interviews and discusses the concept with several people working with specific insects, animals, slime molds, etc. and comes up with some intriguing points. Where his writing falters, the passion of his interviewees picks up, making it worth the effort to get through in the end. I just wish Narby's writing was even half as engaging as the ideas he posits!
