Health A super interesting comparison on the awkward stages of growing up across the animal world and how human behavior isn t so uniue after all I also love that this was written by two women who blatantly point out multiple times that research is often done on the male of the species instead of the female because male scientists are obsessed with other dicks The end of that statement may vaguely be a matter of personal opinion but seriously where s the lie A book on a topic I ve never read about in non human animals Being a teenager is tough and adolescence in other animals is eually awkward clueless and scary This book follows 4 characters a humpback whale a hyena a wolf and a penguin as they progress from childhood to adulthood We see that these kids are just like human kids in many ways and parental responsibility is very similar also I really enjoyed comparisons of adolescence across the animal kingdom I wish I had written down all the terms because I already know I ve forgotten some Reminding myself of the biologically influenced common patterns will hopefully help build patience when interacting with older outh Well one could get the gist of the argument from the prologue or even the title But the rest of the book explores such interesting ideas that it s well. Ough the lives of four animals in the wild Ursula a oung king penguin; Shrink a charismatic hyena; Salt a matriarchal humpback whale; and Slavc a roaming European wolf Through their riveting stories and those of countless others from adventurous eagles and rambunctious high schooler to inexperienced orcas and naive oung soldiers readers get a vivid and game changing portrait of adolescent oung adults as a horizontal tribe sharing behaviors and challenges setbacks and triumphs Upending our understanding of everything from risk taking and anxiety to the origins of privilege and the nature of sexual coercion and consent Wildhood is a profound and necessary guide to the perilous thrilling and universal journey to adulthood on planet earth.

A fascinating and readable look at how all adolescents from humans and through the entire animal kingdom face the same obstacles and tests as they move from childhood to maturity I received a copy of

They write of all kinds of species like Penuins hyena s humpback Whales and human teenagers They study things that this age group go through like status pecking order sex self reliance leaving the nest etc to name a few I found this book fun and interesting to read I liked getting to see what other species go through at this age Not so different from us humans in ways The authors steer clear of excesses of ethology or anthropomorphism and they emphasise that maturity is not a goal but a process A lucid entertaining account of how creatures of many kinds learn to navigate the complex world

Fascinating book about the growing up and the learning gap between childhood and adulthood Bio inspiration is a term used to define understanding how the world work through the lens of evolutionary biology Similar to Bio mimicry nature has the way to solve problems we face for hundreds million of ears so why not we learn from nature Psychological pathway from childhood to adulthood is intriguing I like the explanation fr This book is multi disciplinary It looks at the period in which 4 different animals pass from babyhood to learning to be on their own The 4 animals are a king penguins a hyena humpback whale and wolf All have been tagged by radio though the radios are no longer working The presumptions are two that various all birds and mammals have an adolescent period in which they learn how to be adults on their own and that their experiences offer insight and parallels to our own children s adolescence Underlying but not specifically expressed presumptions I thinker that our own is First World nationscultures and that adolescence can run from 16 or so through the late 20s as seen in a number of households with adult by age offspring that are still living with their parentsEach animal is looked at gaining ability to live on their own in different respects though of course all must learn this for each respect The female king penguin learns how to identify predators and escape them the male hyena learns how to negotiate his status in his natal group the female humpback whale learns how to negotiate sexual encounters and coercion the male wolf learns how to become self reliant while seeking a new living area many hundreds of miles away from his natal areaBecause data were gathered on each animal by radio andor observation these vignettes of each animal are not entirely imagined composites but actual happenings It is good to look at the challenges adolescents face in each of these species and then consider how these challenges play out amongst our own adolescents and importantly all challenges are going on at the same time I am not so sure that these studies produce sensible hypotheses for raising educating counseling and treating adolescent humans as one of the review blurbs states on the back cover But as I say it is good to look at the problems as a construct set and there surely are problems adolescents must learn to deal with than just these four What I don t see is how to transfer a roaming wolf s experiences to an adolescent s going away to college or entering the armed forces or the Peace Corps Each milieu is or less strictly ordered the groups the adolescent enters or less changing in number purpose inter alia There is much musing in each story about how to apply the animal s situation to ours that I found a little strained The authors steer clear of excesses of ethology or anthropomorphism and they emphasise that maturity is not a goal but a process A lucid entertaining account of how creatures of many
