[It offers] a fascinating overview of how far the discipline of applied animal behavior has advanced in the last twenty years.”—Quarterly Review of Biology

But Second Nature provides an informative introduction, as well as offering some pointers to future developments.”—International Zoo News
“Second Nature is a gold mine of information. . . . The editors are leaders in the field and the thirty-eight contributors represent an all-star cast. An excellent book and a must-read.”—BioScience
