With captivating writing and impeccable research, controversial psychoanalyst and New York Times bestselling author Jeffrey Masson offers a remarkable look at one of the most fulfilling roles in the animal world: fatherhood. In The Emperor's Embrace, he showcases the extraordinary behavior of outstanding fathers, heroes among animals, including:
Masson also examines nature's worst fathers: lions, langurs, bears -- and humans. He shows that when a father does care for his young, as does the beaver, we immediately look for a biological and not an emotional explanation. But Masson demonstrates that for these animals -- as with humans -- fatherhood is a profound, all-encompassing experience. Compelling and inspirational, The Emperor's Embrace is a book that will forever change our perceptions of parenthood and family love.

Psychoanalyst Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson offers listeners an enthralling glimpse into the world of fatherhood through his in-depth study of the ways of the animal world. Examining first the emperor penguins and the protective role of the males of this species, Masson moves through the animal kingdom, looking at both good fathers and bad fathers. Jeffery Demunn takes this ripe material and makes it bloom, reading with the relish and enthusiasm that transforms a serious study into required listening. He smooths out the rough edges of the abridgment, while keeping the tone intellectual and scientific, even when Masson assigns human emotions to his subjects. H.L.S.
