This is a really huge book -- 600 pages with small print and large format and I will have to read it very slowly I am reading it to my *____*, to help them fall asleep This is not one of her popular books, but the book she published in 1986 that captures in full, and in scientific form, her life's work. The volume I bought (second-hand) has a lovely inscription in it, written in the year of publication and from a woman who seems to have known Goodall personally, as she refers to her as "Jane" - [...]
A wonderful book for people who an into animal behavior. NOT a mass-market book, but a book full of details and data descriptions.
I couldn't read the entire book because the violence and diseases made me cry. But, other than that I must say that this scientific evaluation of the chimpanzees of Gombe left me with a more profound sense towards animals and with the awesomeness that is Dame Jane Goodall. I totally wish I could meet her in person. :)
An excellent compilation of data in regard to the chimps at Gombe Reserve National Park, which Goodall devoted most of her life to studying.It covers all behaviours, quantifying them, and has decent pictures. I would really like to see an updated version of this work, as it is very monumental.
Goodall is a fantastic scientist, one of the few who open up whole areas originally unexplored.
I read this in conjunction with an Animal Behavior course I took in college and then reread it recently. I realize it's not mainstream reading; but I loved it.
