Ever get that eerie feeling that your cat or dog knows what you're thinking? They just might! Scientist Rupert Sheldrake brings you five years of extensive research on animal behavior, challenging traditional scientific assumptions that pets do not warrant serious study. Well-known for his controversial and revolutionary theory of "morphic resonance" and "morphogenetic fields," Sheldrake applied this to his subject with ingenious questions that have resulted in confirmation that animals do indeed possess psychic and intuitive abilities. You'll also hear astonishing stories involving parrots, termites, and farm animals that will have you looking at the animal kingdom in a whole new light. Rupert Sheldrake studied natural sciences at Cambridge and philosophy at Harvard, took a Ph.D. in biochemistry at Cambridge and is the author of more than 50 scientific papers. He's the author of many books including The Presence of the Past
(Times Books 1995); Seven Experiments That Could Change the World: A Do-It Yourself Guide to Revolutionary Science
(Riverhead Books 1995); A New Science of Life: The Hypothesis of Morphic Resonance
