Alex & Me: How a Scientist and a Parrot Uncovered a Hidden World of Animal Intelligence--and Formed a Deep Bond in the Process by Irene M. PepperbergThis is the story of Irene Pepperberg, the woman who trained a parrot, Alex, to speak English. It talks about the training, risks, and successes of the project. The story is well told and entertaining, it is easy to get drawn in. I am curious if the research has been continued and with what successes.
