Dogs that know when their owners are returning. Cats that answer the telephone when a person they are attached to is calling. Horses that can find their way home over unfamiliar terrain. Animals that anticipate earthquakes. Rupert Sheldrake, one of the world's most innovative scientists, explores ways in which our own family pets can teach us to quesion the boundaries of conventional scientific thought. Much that seems paranormal at present looks normal when we expand our ideas of normality. This is a book of recognition - a recognition that animals have abilities we have lost. Once part of ourselves has forgotten this; another part has known it all along.
