Mind of the Raven is an interesting exploration of a fascinating species. There are all sorts of cool anecdotes about raven behavior, both in captivity and the wild. I particularly enjoyed the exploration of the possibility of ravens having mutualistic relationships with predators like wolves and humans, where the ravens feed from the predators' kills and may direct the predators toward prey. The structure of the book wasn't terribly coherent. There were some places in the early to middle parts of the book where my interest lagged a bit, but the latter chapters caught my interest again.
