I first read this book in the 60s and have reread it twice since. Lorenz mixes anthropology with personal experience. Dog and cat owners will recognize and laugh at the animal (human and otherwise)behaviors described. Like Desmond Morris (The Naked Ape), Lorenz' style is comprehensible for most readers over 12 without dumbing down the subject.
