5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging, entertaining, and educational, November 18, 1999
This review is from: Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers: An Updated Guide to Stress, Stress Related Diseases, and Coping (2nd Edition) (Perfect Paperback)
As a veterinary student, I was searching the shelves of our library looking for a different book when I stumbled onto Sapolsky's work. Intrigued by the title, I read through the preface and was immediately hooked. I checked the book out and read it cover to cover that night--in spite of my other responsibilities.
Sapolsky has a true talent for simplifying the complex, without patronizing the reader or diluting the facts. Even with a few years of vet school behind me, I still found myself learning something from every page. Not only that, but I was looking forward to reading each page, wondering what hilarious story or anecdote would come next.
I wish I had read Dr. Sapolsky's work before I had taken first-year physiology. I would have been far better off.
[As a side note, I was touched by the dedication.]
