A story of the psychologist who taught chimpanzees to communicate with American Sign Language. As a 12-year-old I was riveted, and I still enjoy rereading this insightful, compassionate story. It has it all: love, conflict (among big-name academics and within the chimps's social groups), evolution, philosophy and personal struggle.
