Wow. I haven't come across this subject matter for a very long time. Personally, I don't agree with a single bit of it.

If you read his works, he has pre-concieved notions on how the different animals act, and all of it is based on his beliefs, not science.

It is an incredibly subjective work with a large amount of bias, and zero scientific basis.

An interesting find, but I would be surprised if anyone finds scientific merit to it.
