Paul Raffaele has done a great job writing this book! I'm really happy that I stumbled across it while browsing the shelves at the library. If you have the slightest interest in the great apes this is a definite read. It is amazing to learn about the differences in the behavior each kind of ape and how almost human they seem. Although, it is certainly sad to read how the continued civil unrest in the African countries and commercialization is causing many of the apes to face extinction.
