5.0 out of 5 stars An Fascinating Read
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...

This review is from: The Trials of Life: A Natural History of Animal Behaviour (Hardcover)
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.

This review is from: The Trials of Life: A Natural History of Animal Behaviour (Hardcover)
'Trials of Life' is another superb book by Attenborough looking at animal and plant behaviour that aids in their survival. Like all of his books his style is extremely easy to read and you are soon drawn in to the fascinating lives of the various animals he describes. Throughout the book you get one page of text and another full page of the most stunning photography you are ever likely to see and occasionally you'll get a double spread for a particularly impressive image. This looks at animal behaviour in relation to eating, reproduction, fighting, finding shelter, making friends and a whole range of other traits besides. As part of the Attenborough collection this can't be missed, but it is well worth a look in it's own right and makes for a couple days of informative and completely engrossing reading. The wonder of nature has rarely been so well presented, and yet we've become used to that from Attenborough and anything less would be a let down. This more than lives up to this high standard.

Feel free to check out my blog which can be found on my profile page.

This review is from: The Trials of Life: A Natural History of Animal Behaviour (Hardcover)
My daughter has just started an animal management course which covers all aspects of animal behaviour. She was quite young when this programme came out, but she is finding the book very informative and is enjoying reading it.

The book arrived promptly and was packaged well. I would use this seller again.
