Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reason for Hope I very much enjoyed this book. As a university graduate I was very much interested in seeing how a scientist such as Goodall could marry religious beliefs with science. As I read it became obvious to me that Goodall has embraced religion and has some unique ideas on how a scientific mind can accept such a thing as faith without actual imperial evidence. She also cites examples of very special people who have made a difference in her life and are sure to inspire. This book is an uncomplicated look at spirituality from the perspective of a woman who has done extraordinary things and it has given me much to thing about when I think of my own spirituality. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for some answers in their own life. It doesn't answer all life's problems but it does give reason for hope.

From the Publisher

Dr. Jane Goodall''s revolutionary study of chimpanzees in Tanzania''s Gombe preserve forever altered the very, definition of humanity.Now, in a poignant and insightful memoir, Jane Goodall explores her extraordinary life and personal spiritual odyssey, with observations as profound as the knowledge she has brought back from the forest.

About the Author

Jane Goodall, 1934 - Jane Goodall, a well-respected English zoologist, is famous for her fieldwork with chimpanzees in Africa. An early interest in African wild animals and the opportunity, at age 18, to stay on a friend's farm in Kenya, led her to Dr. Louis Leakey; then curator of the National Museum of Natural History in Nairobi. Almost immediately Leakey hired Goodall as his assistant secretary, and she was soon accompanying Leakey and his wife on their expeditions. Following Leakey's suggestion that a field study of some of the higher primates would be a major contribution to the understanding of animal behavior, she began studying the chimpanzees of the Gombe Stream Research Center in Tanganyika (now Tanzania) in 1960. Although she had no undergraduate degree, Goodall earned a Ph.D. from Cambridge University in 1965, based on her first five years of research at the Gombe Center. After more than 20 years of extensive study and direct contact with wild chimpanzees in their natural habitat, Goodall continues to research, teach, and write about primate behavior today.

From Our Editors

When Jane Goodall first released the results of her research into the lives and intelligence of chimpanzees, she captured the world's imagination, and now at the age of 60, she is as courageous an advocate of animal rights as ever before. Reason for Hope is her life story, and it is a fascinating spiritual autobiography, focusing on her ideas about moral evolution and the presence of the divine in all life. Above all though, the book is a reminder of the human ability to persevere through even the darkest adversity.
