11 quotes from Richard O'Barry: 'A dolphin's smile is the greatest deception. It creates the illusion that they're always happy. 'The slaughter of dolphins and other marine mammals is no more horrible than captive dolphins performing tricks because it's not just dolphins were talking about, it's also people. Especially children The effect is devastatingly the same because millions of people every year who watch and cheer this spectacle of dominance are in some way also cheering every other form of environmental ravishment. A dolphin's smile is the greatest deception.

Behind The Dolphin Smile. The name of the book that I read was Behind the Dolphin Smile written by Richard O’Barry and Keith Coulbourn. Topics: Marine mammal park, Dolphin, SeaWorld Pages: 2 (480 words) Published: August 25, 2014. It has 288 pages, and was Published July 7th 2000 by Renaissance Books (first published September 1st 1991). Behind the Dolphin Smile is a book that is based on the true story of a dolphin trainer that was holding the dolphin that played Flapper on TV in his arms as it died of stressed.

People who have faced death often speak of their lives flashing before their lives. Something much different happened to dolphin trainer Richard O'Barry when one of the dolphins that played Flipper on television died of stress in his arms. He realized that most of his career as an animal trainer had been a mistake and that dolphins have as much right to freedom as humans. He vowed not to rest until he freed every last dolphin that could be returned to the wild successfully.This is a true story that will move not only animal lovers but everyone who loves a well-told tale. Ric O'Barry had everything-money, flashy cars, pretty women-but it wasn't enough to keep his conscience at bay. He began to understand that dolphins were easy to train because of their great intelligence, not his great talent, and keeping them in captivity was cruel and morally wrong. While research and entertainment are important to human life, they are not worth the cost to these beautiful and gentle animals.O'Barry was arrested trying to free a dolphin, but that didn't stop him, and he now devotes his life to untraining dolphins and returning them to their natural habitats. Once the pride of the billion-dollar dolphin captivity industry, he has since become its nemesis.

This book is a fascinating look into Rick's early life. You see his time as a scuba diver, a treasure hunter, and quickly he becomes employed to the Miami Seaquarium. He helped capture animals ranging from small tropical fish to dolphins. He worked at feeding them, training them, and eventually landed a job working as the trainer for the various dolphins used in Flipper. That right there is the main chunk of the story. Rick's time training Kathy and the other dolphins. You see his experiences on the show and how they got certain shots, what it was like working with the people and more. I'll be honest, reading this I couldn't help but think a fan of Flipper might enjoy reading this. I would guess that about 70% of this book is about what happened behind the scenes on Flipper. The rest is dedicated to his life before and after the show. Less that a quarter of this book is decicated to his activism, so if you were hoping for that you won't be finding it.

For me I felt that this book does drive to home how one man came to the conclusion that these animals shouldn't be held in captivity. He doesn't smash you over the head with it constantly, rather you get bits and pieces about what is wrong with the industry as a whole. Now be aware that a lot of the attitudes of the individuals in this book are based on the time period. While it may seem obvious to us now, the fact that animals have thoughts and emotions was pretty controversial. Animals were seen as little more than living breathing machines. Rick learned that this was wrong. Dolphins are able to do these tricks not because people are great trainers, but because the animal itself is incredibly intelligent. You learn along with him why no dolphin should be confined in a tank.

I would recommend this book to anyone, especially to fans of the Flipper show. It not only gives you some great behind the scenes looks of the show, but gives a powerful environmental message about respecting dolphins as they are, not as we want them to be.

One of my most favorite books of all time. And I have read thousands.

Not just because its about dolphins and how Ric O'Barry saves them, but also the incredible adventures in between! Beautifully written context upon which O'Barry lays a compelling journey full of laughs and tears. The fight to free all the captive dolphins from their prisons has been a movement that has grown exponentially over the year thanks to Blackfish (a MUST SEE) but O'Barry's documentary The Cove was so stunning the pain is still with me now. Don't miss it. This book and his The Cove film show the horrors of captivity and the truth behind that gorgeous yet deceiving dolphin smile.

. . . and all other wild creatures in zoos and aquariums. I am very impressed with the work done by Richard O'Barry in stopping something that should have never started. When I was in my late teens and early 20's, I went to horse shows where the horses are treated terribly - heavy shoes, constant and unending time in small stalls with the only time they get out being totally structured with no feeling of freedom and being a horse. I can identify with O'Barry and his unending battle to free all dolphins and whales from any sort of captivity. Kudos to you !

We cannot continue to use other species of sentient, intelligent lifeforms for entertainment. We may as well bring back the Colosseum and Gladiators if we are so callus and greedy for entertainment. WE ARE DESTROYING ourselves in the process. Shame, Shame, Shame on all that condone the slavery of any species.
Mr Freeman
Ric O'Barry is hero and example for the acts of bravery to educate and influence thought and policy on the crimes against cetaceans which occur from thoughtless mistreatment of creatures whom likely have equal or superior intellect to humans; also suggest Susan Casey's book Vouces in the Ocean

FLIPPER was my favorite show as a child. It was interesting to learn what the life of these captive dolphins is really like. The author certainly convinced me these beautiful and intelligent creatures should be free and never exploited. Informative read.
Beautiful person, beautiful story... thank-you Ric!
