The remarkable story of a “talking” chimp, a leading scientist, and the profound insights they have uncovered about our speciesHe has been featured in cover stories in Time, Newsweek, and National Geographic, and has been the subject of a “NOVA” documentary. He is directly responsible for discoveries that have forced the scientific community to recast its thinking about the nature of the mind and the origins of language. He is Kanzi, an extraordinary bonobo chimpanzee who has overturned the idea that symbolic language is unique to our species. This is the moving story of how Kanzi learned to converse with humans and the profound lessons he has taught us about our animal cousins, and ourselves.
