Almost 200 million human beings, mostly civilians, have died in wars over the last century, and there is no end of slaughter in sight. The Most Dangerous Animal asks what it is about human nature that makes it possible for human beings to regularly slaughter their own kind. It tells the story of why all human beings have the potential to be hideously cruel and destructive to one another. Why are we our own worst enemy? The book shows us that war has been with us---in one form or another---since prehistoric times, and looking at the behavior of our close relatives, the chimpanzees, it argues that a penchant for group violence has been bred into us over millions of years of biological evolution. The Most Dangerous Animal takes the reader on a journey through evolution, history, anthropology, and psychology, showing how and why the human mind has a dual nature: on the one hand, we are ferocious, dangerous animals who regularly commit terrible atrocities against our own kind, on the other, we have a deep aversion to killing, a horror of taking human life. Meticulously researched and far-reaching in scope and with examples taken from ancient and modern history, The Most Dangerous Animal delivers a sobering lesson for an increasingly dangerous world.

Consider, if you can, the case of Jacob Fowler, who heard what he thought was the sound of his own skull cracking between the jaws of a grizzly bear - only to discover that it was. Or the Arizonan jogger who ran a mile back to her car with a rabid fox clamped to her arm before driving to hospital for live-saving inoculations. Or the woman who was attacked by a hyena, dragged from her tent by her face and survived to tell of her ordeal. The dangers of the animal kingdom are the stuff of legend but the reality of man's vulnerability and of nature's savage power is far more various, improbable and chilling than even the most active imagination would fear. In this unique work of nature writing, you will encounter the most formidable predators on land and sea - as well as the most overlooked, bizarre and inventive hazards that mother nature has to offer. Meet the cougar that can leap 40 feet and clear 8-foot fences with a fully-grown deer in its jaws, the tapeworm that's been known to grow as long as 82 feet in the human gut and the elephant that single-handedly destroyed an oil tanker. Drawing on an enormous host of true encounters between man and beast, this is the world's most authoritative compendium of animal attacks on human beings. With mordant wit and expert timing, Gordon Grice provides a gripping journey to the dark side of the animal kingdom and a celebration of its humbling, savage glory. (Originally published in hardback as The Book of Deadly Animals.)

Continue Reading →

One of Hollywood’s top animal handlers recounts the story of her harrowing coming-of-age in the magnetic grip of her father, a menagerie of wild and dangerous animals, and the connection that would transform her life. Kirstin McMillan’s childhood was a literal circus. By the time she was eight, she was working with her family under the glittering lights of the Ringling Brothers tent. But not all that glitters is gold. When her parents split and her father decided to settle the family down on his own animal training ranch, Kirstin, her brothers and the animals were treated in the same cold and domineering manner: Do your job and you'll be fine, but never forget who's in charge. Captive beneath her father’s iron fist, Kirstin saw all animals, human or otherwise, as predatory—dangerous animals to be feared. By the time she was seventeen, she was a runaway, desperate for connection and trying to save her drug addicted brother. Even through fear and poverty, it was the animal/human bond that restored her happiness and independence. Today, Kirstin is a top Hollywood animal and celebrity dog trainer. Unlike her upbringing, Kirstin approaches animals with kindness and humor. Dangerous Animals is a tale of cruelty and heartache, of fear and redemption, and of the special connection between animals and humans, and love’s power to mend a broken life.

Deadly Animals explores the ultimate question:which animal wins the title of the most deadly of all time? It is not such an easy question as you might think. Does it belong to the fast and powerful big cats; or is it one of the ancient dinosaurs like Tyrannosaurus Rex or even a large marine predator, like the GreatWhite Shark or the KillerWhale, as recent movies and various legends seem to suggest? Maybe. Yet, sometimes small is powerful, especially if armed with stingers or fangs. Some of the tiniest creatures of all can claim the largest number of victims, like the Anopheles Mosquito,which can spread the deadly disease malaria. So, it is really difficult to judge, isn't it? To help you make up your own mind, Deadly Animals presents the most dangerous creatures on Earth, each accompanied by a unique deadly score. Could the toxic slime that oozes from the skin of the Poison Dart Frog put it into the top ten? Or will it be the jaw power and killer instinct of the 'King of the Jungle' - the African lion? Turn the pages (carefully!) to meet the most lethal animals from ancient times to the modern day.
