    Really interesting. Quick overview of Jane's life and career at Gombe and around the world. Lots of great photographs. Overall a short book but I liked it and I'm interested in reading more Jane Goodall books!! She seems like a really amazing woman. Really interesting.

    This is a coffee table book filled with great pictures, interesting stories, and (as the title suggests) and overview of Goodall's first 40 years at Gombe, in Tanzania. I had fun reading the stories and looking at the pictures. It's a nicely put together history of the subject matter.

    I read it this morning, it's an incredibly fast read because of the amount of pictures (fantastic, by the way.) This short book goes into Goodall's research with the chimpanzees, her work creating sanctuaries for orphaned and sick chimps, as well as her work creating humanitarian organizations to promote sustainable farming practices, better health care, and family planning practices in different countries in Africa.

I really look up to Jane Goodall as a woman pioneer in biological fieldwork, as well as a caring humanitarian. I recommend this book to everyone, especially those that do not necessarily have an interest in reading 300 pages about chimp behavior. Although I would recommend "In the Shadow of Man" to just about anyone as well.

    Read in one sitting! Great for anyone interested in women's efforts in the biological sciences and/or primate behavior. It accounts Goodall's work in Gombe, including accounts of both her research/life, as well as the lives of the chimps. Indeed, some of the accounts were so detailed and perfect that the reader begins to feel a deep connection to the chimpanzee families, especially the "F" colony.

    This is an extremely detailed and wonderful account of Jane Goodall's 40 years among African primates. I checked it out of the university library when I was a college student, and I must admit that I told them I lost it (and willfully paid for it) so I could keep it. Which makes it one of my most expensive books. The reader becomes intimately acquainted with specific primates and their families. I felt so attached that I cried near the end.

    Learned a lot about the dynamics of chimpanzee behavior which was actually shocking.

    Interesting book about Jane Goodall and her work with the chimps. BEAUTIFUL pictures. A little heavy-handed on the political aspects of her work.
