Críticas:

"If common ancestors with worms, fish, and apes lie in our past, then "Zoobiquity" points the way to our future. The connections we share with the rest of life on our planet are a source of beauty and, in Natterson-Horowitz and Bowers' luminous new account, the inspiration for an emerging and powerful approach to human health. "Zoobiquity "is a book that explodes barriers and myths all in the purpose of bettering the human condition."
"--"Neil Shubin, paleontologist and author of" Your Inner Fish
"
""Zoobiquity" is full of fascinating stories of intersection between human and nonhuman medicine -- fish that faint; dinosaur cancers; human treatments that cure dogs of melanoma; lessons from adolescent elephant behavior that explain human teenagers. I was beguiled."
--Atul Gawande, M.D.
"Centered on an insight rich with consequences, this beautifully written book is loaded with fascinating material that makes a compelling case for viewing human health and disease comparatively. We have more to learn from other species than I had ever suspected. Gripping and memorably engaging, it belongs in the hands of anyone with an ounce of curiosity about the biological sources of the human condition."
--Stephen Stearns, PhD., Edward P. Bass Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Yale University
"Fascinating reading about the similarities in both the physiology and behavior of people and animals."
--Temple Grandin, Ph.D.

An O, The Oprah Magazine Summer Reading Pick
Finalist, 2013 AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prize for Excellence in Science Books

Do animals overeat? Get breast cancer? Have fainting spells?
Inspired by an eye-opening consultation at the Los Angeles Zoo, which revealed that a monkey experienced the same symptoms of heart failure as her human patients, cardiologist Barbara Natterson-Horowitz embarked upon a project that would reshape how she practiced medicine. Beginning with the above questions, she began informally researching every affliction that she encountered in humans to learn whether it happened with animals, too. And usually, it did: dinosaurs suffered from brain cancer, koalas can catch chlamydia, reindeer seek narcotic escape in hallucinogenic mushrooms, stallions self-mutilate, and gorillas experience clinical depression. Natterson-Horowitz and science writer Kathryn Bowers have dubbed this pan-species approach to medicine zoobiquity. Here, they present a revelatory understanding of what animals can teach us about the human body and mind, exploring how animal and human commonality can be used to diagnose, treat, and heal patients of all species.
