Review: Being a Beast: Adventures Across the Species Divide

Being a Beast: Adventures Across the Species Divide
Being a Beast: Adventures Across the Species Divide by Charles Foster
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Veterinarian and philosopher Charles Foster describes his attempts to be and understand badgers, foxes, swifts and more. From living in an underground den he dug with his own claws and eating earthworms to starving like a red deer in winter, sometimes accompanied by one or more of his six kids, this telling is both poetic and manic. Definitely entertaining, but I’m not sure what I learned from reading this book.
