What a fascinating journal. The author's experiences while habituating Bonobo apes in the rainforest of the Democratic Republic of Congo are so far removed from the daily lives of most of us that they make for compelling reading, and for any budding naturalists or would-be David Attenboroughs out there I would think this little gem of a book is an essential addition to your library. The book assumes a minimal level of knowledge of the natural world and is written in a witty and easy to digest style that informs and educates without ever insulting the reader's intelligence. This is not some dull, fusty text, but a vibrant evocation of nine months spent in the company of one of our closest animal cousins (the other being the Chimpanzee) and its many and varied neighbours. Highly recommended.

This is a very well written, humorous and personal account of a life and job I didn't know existed until I read this book. It transports the reader into the depths of the jungle and you become a part of the team as if you were there. It's a very informative read whilst portraying to the reader the charm and intimacy of what it must be like working with such wonderful animals in their own territory. I'd recommend this book to everyone.

This is a good story and a fascinating subject in an area which is not oversubscribed. It's strange there are not more first-hand accounts of work with Bonobos. However, I guess this is self-published as the staccato style and random grammar and weird punctuation don't seem to have received the attention of an editor and make it a less than a compulsive read. In fact it reminds me of the spoken style of Corporal O'Reilly from MASH. It also cries out for some photographs showing life in camp, the jungle environment and not least the Bonobos themselves. I know from personal experience that full colour publications can be created at reasonable cost. So this is an opportunity missed. Still worth a read though.

This is such a great read, gives you an insight to the life off grid, humorous, but also informative. If you want to learn about bonobos take a look
