Author Dr. Aysha Akhtarabout this book: Want to know how our relationships with animals impact your well-being? Then read, Our Symphony With Animals. On Health, Empathy and Our Shared Destinies. Written by a neurologist, this book is part memoir, part investigative journalism, part science and medicine. The author travels around the country to explore how animals had a significant impact on people's lives. From a marine veteran with PTSD, a former mobster, a social worker who reformed one of the most notorious penal institutions in the world, to a convicted serial killer and a former cattle rancher. This book will open up your eyes to just how profoundly animals can impact our lives, in ways we might never have expected.

• "In her eye-opening and touching account, Aysha Akhtar takes us from one example to another of animals making our lives better."
— Frans de Waal, author of Mama's Last Hug: Animal Emotions and What They Tell Us about Ourselves

• "Her wonderful book is at once intimate and global, and its message is crucial: empathy with our fellow animals is vital for the health of humans and non-humans alike."
— Sy Montgomery, author of 'How to Be a Good Creature'
