3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By James H. Wade on 16 Nov. 2010
Format: Paperback
Here is the perfect introduction to the primates, all 300 or so, some charismatic and iconic, many little known to most of us but equally fascinating. It is beautifully produced with a perfect balance between text, maps, diagrams and, of course stunning, often very moving photographs. We are only one primate species among many but as this book reminds us the future of all lies in the hands of ourselves alone. Suffering terribly from habitat loss and the ravages of the bush meat trade our relatives need all the help they can get. This excellent book with its inspirational foreword by Jane Goodall makes its own informed contribution to that now desperate endeavour.

Beautiful pictures! 18 Jun. 2013
By T. Justice - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book provides readers with very descriptive information on many different primates! The pictures are very beautiful!!! The book is larger than i had expected (however i'm sure the size listed was correct, i just didn't notice when purchasing)! Perfect for primate collectors/anthropology majors and anyone who is interested in primates!

this was a gift for someone else, they say the book is factual and to the point. Very interesting if you are into primatology/anthropology.
