Life of Pi

  

by Yann Martel

Life of Pi Part 1, Chapter 9 Summary

How It All Goes Down

  • Pi talks (yes, some more) about getting animals used to presence of humans, manipulating the fight or flight instinct, and creating stress-free environments for animals so they're happy, don't kill you, etc.
  • Pi's father is very good at all of this.
