A fascinating read providing insight to the lives of wolves and what living with one would be like as well as deep philosophical and thought provoking ideas regarding the meaning of existence. Rowlands makes a strong distinction between apes and wolves, the basis their “societies” are built on and the importance of determining what is the fundamental essence of a well lived life.

An easy but intensely thoughtful read with true to life applications. Very enjoyable and thoroughly thought provoking.
