5.0 out of 5 stars A truly addictive read, 18 Jun 2012

This review is from: In the Shadow of Man (Paperback)
In my younger days, when the idea of staying up all night was a mortifying one, I would make a point of reading this book every summer. I would do so in a single sitting each time, and find myself engrossed from beginning to end. 'In the Shadow of Man' reads almost like a novel, and is not simply captivating from a scientific point of view, but the stories of the varied and often so human-like personalities and antics of the chimpanzee population of the Gombe can be at times amusing, at times heartbreaking, but always entertaining. Even those who have no interest at all in the scientific aspects of the book are bound to find it an interesting read.

I found I had recently misplaced my copy, so I am purchasing it again not only to read it once more but because my collection just wouldn't be complete without it.
