Alex & Me - Paperback

2009, ISBN: 9780061673986

[ED: Taschenbuch / Paperback], [PU: HarperCollins US], KURZE BESCHREIBUNG/ANMERKUNGEN: One of the most extraordinary animal-human relationships of our time: Alex was an African grey parrot, bought at a pet shop at age one, who bonded with psychologist Irene Pepperberg, and spent 30 years learning language, spelling, and logic, as they became each others life mates. AUSFÜHRLICHERE BESCHREIBUNG: Of the 8 million parrots in the United States, none was more famous than Alex, the African grey who spent 30 years in the loving care of Dr. Irene Pepperberg until his untimely death in September, 2007. The public outpouring of grief over his loss was enormous, and global. Alex had become famous for his intelligence, learning over 100 words and many concepts, and even sounding out words and making logical leaps. But the full story of his relationship with Irene was a story of emotional ties - parrots mate for life, developing unique duets with their partners, exhibiting affection, jealousy, and craving attention. Alex did all this with Irene. His last words to her were "I love you, too. Youll be in tomorrow?" He passed away that night, the victim of heart failure. ALEX & ME is a story of adventure for both Irene and Alex. She was 28 when she bought Alex in a pet shop, a one-year-old parrot whose future was uncertain. They grew through their adulthoods together, as Irenes laboratory was moved from university to university, while she struggled to force the scientific world to take a "birdbrain" seriously. At age 8, Alex was coining new terms: he called an apple a "banerry" (combing cherry-red with banana, the fruit he knew best). At MIT, he loved to play games in the Media Lab, and he sulked when Irene didnt pay attention to him. He also showered her with attention and affection: if she grew agitated, he would tell her to "calm down." When he awoke from a surgery, his first words were "wanna go," so they could return to his home together. ALEX & ME is ultimately a book about the universal truths of relationships, just as much as an astonishing scientific journey., [SC: 0.00], Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot, 210 mm, [GW: 225g]

ID: 208824

"You be good. I love you," were Alex's final words to his owner, research scientist Irene Pepperberg, before his premature death at age thirty-one on September 6, 2007. An African Grey parrot, Alex had a brain the size of a shelled walnut, yet he could add, sound out words, understand concepts like bigger, smaller, more, fewer, and none, and he disproved the widely accepted idea that birds possess no potential for language or anything remotely comparable to human intelligence. "Alex & Me" is the remarkable true account of an amazing, irascible parrot and his best friend who stayed together through thick and thin for thirty years--the astonishing, moving, and unforgettable story of a landmark scientific achievement and a beautiful relationship.
