Are you Smarter than a Chimpanzee? Find out by competing against some of the planet’s cleverest animals as Professor Ben Ambridge (University of Liverpool) previews his new book...

What makes humans special? What makes us different from animals?

Psy-Q author Ben Ambridge's entertaining, illuminating new book has a surprising answer: less than you might think.

Really, we're all just animals. But all animals - us included - are pretty special.

Are You Smarter Than a Chimpanzee? is a collection of ingenious tests, puzzles, quizzes and games that pits the reader against a range of extraordinary creatures to show that, from dolphins that understand grammar to parrots that can add up, via fetishist quails and the ant-swarms outsmarting the world's best mathematicians, the animal kingdom is more than a match for anything mankind has to offer.

Along the way, Ambridge debunks a plethora of common myths about animals and reveals the bizarre and wonderful science being done at the extreme end of zoology, where animal psychologists are designing personality tests for donkeys and logic problems for pigeons.

This event is free and open to everyone. There is no need to book so please just turn up on the night.
