Learning to communicate with nonhuman animals can be a rewarding and enjoyable experience. Sadly, many people don’t seem to spend much time, attention, or effort on this practice. It’s more often than not a one-way street, where humans are doing and saying things to animals, and paying just enough attention to them to see if they’re obeying or reacting in the way the human wants.

Luckily, there’s a growing community of humans who seek to build relationships with animals and understand and respect their experiences. Here are some useful books from some of the foremost experts in the field to help you do just that.
