'We rarely pause to consider what animals think or feel, or question whether their inner lives resemble our own. Tom Mustill's fascinating and deeply humane book shows us why we must do so - and what we, and the planet, could stand to gain by it'
Greta Thunberg

'A rich, enthralling, brilliant book that opens our eyes and ears to worlds we can scarcely imagine'
George Monbiot, Sunday Times bestselling author of Regenesis

'Tantalizing ... Think how transformative it would be if we could chat with whales about their love lives or their sorrows or their thoughts on the philosophy of language'
Elizabeth Kolbert, New Yorker

'Mind-blowing ... You will never feel closer to the magnificence of whales'
Lucy Jones, author of Losing Eden

'A scary, important and brilliant book ... If we do get to translate 'whale', will we like what they've got to say?'
Philip Hoare, author of Leviathan, and Albert & the Whale

'Mustill takes us farther, much farther, than Dr. Dolittle ever imagined. And he does it with humility and sensitivity that befits the subject'
Carl Safina

'Riveting ... How to Speak Whale is one of the most exciting and hopeful books I have read in ages'
Sy Montgomery, author of The Soul of an Octopus

Frans de Waal

'A lively and informative read that heralds what could be the golden age of animal communication'
