Like all of sir David's books The Trials of Life exposes the natural world in ways you cannot imagine. Each chapter is on a different aspect of an animal's life such as migration, living in a group, homemaking, escaping predators, hunting & even how different species can benefit from each other such as the cleaner wrasse getting rid of the parasites from visiting fish. The wrasse gets a meal , the fish get relief.I wont reveal more because if your interested in animal behaviour then you should buy this book & learn how the creatures we share our world can be so fascinating and magnificant.
The photography is amazing , how do they get that close ? Whether you are new to wildlife or had a life long fascination I recommend this book even though it can be hard to find. David Attenborough's books always are as enthralling as the series they accompany as you always learn something new about our friends from the animal kingdom. Other books from David Attenborough I have read are Life on Earth, The Living Planet, The Life of Birds & The Life of Mammals. All are wonderfully written with beautiful photography. I highly recommend anything written or presented by him.
