great scientific observer,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Bonobo and the Atheist: In Search of Humanism Among the Primates (Hardcover)
Lot of books about behaviour and in particular animal behaviour that are written by "scientists". But having a university degree doesn't mean that person is a great scientist.
However, De Waal observes as no other (that I know of) !!
His reasoning is clean and simple.
No jumping to conclusions (and thus the wrong conclusions). Never cluttered by (typical human) emotions or knowledge that blurs the thue animal-reasoning. Great reading!!
