it was amazing

Lawrence Anthony isn't a particularly strong writer, and he often goes off on non-elephant-related tangents that I found rather frustrating. But after reading the incredible story of how Anthony saved and forged a relationship with a herd of angry, distrustful elephants, you won't care about the book's shortcomings. Anthony's elephant tales -- which range from heartbreaking to funny to downright terrifying -- demonstrate that these animals have highly sophisticated communication systems and emotional intelligence. I have many friends who are passionate about elephants, and this book helped me to understand why.
