Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In an outstanding performance rich in pride, compassion, and vulnerability, Jane Goodall introduces the listener to the world of the Gombe chimpanzees she studied for twenty-five years. Her observations of the chimps alone could fill volumes, but a listener gets so much more from this superbly written biography. With an even pace, an expert abridgment, and perfectly selected music dividing each chapter, this work comes to life courtesy of Goodall’s own voice…As much a spiritual recounting of her amazing travels as it is a push for all of us to treat the earth with more respect…Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“A remarkable story…passionate and convincing.” Washington Post Book World
“The Einstein of behavioral sciences.” Los Angeles Times
“A poignant, highly readable memoir, the book is a quiet treasure.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution
“The scarcity of Jane Goodalls…may be more ominous than the scarcity of chimpanzees.” Rocky Mountain News
“Marvelous…Despite the darkness, however, throughout her life’s adventures—and there are enough, in jungle and city, to make this book viscerally as well as morally thrilling—Goodall has nurtured a fundamental understanding that goodness can prevail, with each person’s help. This is a moving and inspiring book.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Provides interesting insights into the personal convictions of a world-famous researcher. This unusual book tells of not only the adventures of Goodall’s life but also the faith she constantly relies on and learns from, and as such, it is a unique look at the development of a scientist.” Booklist
“[Goodall] blends a disarming humility and sense of wonder at the natural world with a determined belief that humankind is capable of doing better…A very thought-provoking and wonderful read.” Library Journal
