While the content was interesting, the writing was poor and the amount of detail was too much. The personal stories were great, but they were written as if by a 5th grader. Yes, I know this was written for young adults, but I read plenty of YA books and they're written to a higher quality.
I adore and admire Dr. Goodall.

Very good read. Fast paced and full of useful info. This will steer me toward Jane's book In the Shadow of Man. I really like how it balanced the personal info, the fundraising/philanthropy and groundbreaking primatology.

I learned a lot I didn't know previously, especially regarding Jane's personal life. I wonder how the author got the info. Would be nice to hear that story as well.
really good book, but i thought that the author sorta skipped around a lot... otherwise it was a really good book. i liked it a lot :P
