Anyone who has always felt a connection to animals, whether it be your pet poodle FeFe or a wild wolf running in a pack, this book brings a new level of understanding them and honoring their energy within yourself and within nature. Mr. Andrews covers a wide range of animals from reptiles and insects to birds and mammals. He takes you into the myths and legends, symbology, biology, lifestyles, and significance of each animal he presents. He also helps explain how to explore and apply more on your own about them.
I personally use this book on a regular basis. Any time I have an animal encounter whether it be physical or in a dream or in conversation...I run back to Animal Speak to refresh my memory about the teachings and gifts the animal symbolizes. Additionally, for those that practice, study or have interest in shamanism and animal totems...this book is for you. I cannot say enough great things about this book. It will always remain in my library and be one that I refer to and refer others to. Love It!

I bought this book and gave it away to the Salvation Army with a bit of regret., because this book is basically awful and any of the information other than the very basic animal symbology is misleading and innaccurate. I would not recommend this, there are too many other books that touch this topic truly, keep looking, nithing to see or read here.
