Candler Professor of Psychology at Emory University and Director of the Living Links Center for the Advanced Study of Ape and Human Evolution at the Yerkes Primate Center in Atlanta.

"[An] absorbing collection. . . . Rather than harp on the tired theme 'they're more like us than you think, ' de Waal instead offers warmly personal explanations of the impressive diversity of behavior among primate species. . . . Humor and personality are counterbalanced by deftly inserted scientific concepts and theories, and de Waal's expressive photos draw viewers into the 'soap opera' of the primates' lives. . . . This book crosses the species barrier with grace."--"Publishers Weekly"
