Review

Praise for the first edition:
[Smuts] provides the reader with a vivid description of her own mental processes in carrying out the project--from the formulation of the initial questions, to the design of the data collection protocol, to the objective definition of friendship, to the moments when she gained insights from particular incidents in the field and used them to create or refine hypotheses, and finally to the analysis and interpretation [conveying] to the reader both the richness of everyday exchanges between male and female baboons and a feel for the intellectual experience of fieldwork. (C. M. Berman Animal Behaviour)

Format: Paperback
In this marvelous book Smuts draws from years of painstaking field research in which she followed around a flange of chacma baboons in the Mateti Game Park in Zimbabwe. Her findings inspired the plot of When Harry Met Sally.

Format: Hardcover
Despite the title, I'd prefer to have sex and friendship outside of a baboon, but for those brave enough to try, this book is an indispensable guide.
As the great Groucho Marx once said, "Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, of course, it's too dark to read." And I might add--sex and friendship too.
