"It blew my mind to discover that adolescent animals and humans are so similar...I loved this book!" -- Temple Grandin, author of "Animals Make Us Human and Animals in Translation"

A "vivid...and fascinating" (Los Angeles Times) investigation of human and animal adolescence from the New York Times bestselling authors of "Zoobiquity."

UCLA cardiology professor Barbara Natterson-Horowitz and animal behaviorist Kathryn Bowers studied thousands of wild species searching for evidence of human-like adolescence in other animals. With a groundbreaking synthesis of animal behavior, human psychology, and evolutionary biology, their research uncovered something remarkable: the same four high-stakes tests shape the destiny of every adolescent on planet Earth -- how to be safe, how to navigate social hierarchies, how to connect romantically, and how to live independently. Safety. Status. Sex. Self-reliance.
