Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Zoologist Morris’ name is forever linked to the 1967 best-selling The Naked Ape. His interest in, and vast knowledge of, the great apes (gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos, and orangutans) is again in full—and this time opulent—display in a new, oversize book every active public-library science collection should own. Human DNA differs from that of the great apes by only a few percentage points, and that is the basic fact upon which Morris’ survey rests. He covers the apes’ physiology, eating habits, intelligence, social life and communication skills, reproduction, and preservation needs. All the information presented here is refracted through the prism of the author’s interest in establishing the differences and similarities to humans. The abundant, beautiful illustrations are tightly tied to the text, making this an excellent teaming of word and picture. --Brad Hooper

Review

Format: Hardcover
`Planet Ape' is a truly exceptional book about all the great apes and covers Chimpanzees, Gorillas, Orangutans, Bonobos and Humans. The information enclosed is nothing short of staggering and of all the books on primates and apes I own this one is the most comprehensive, with a great deal of relevant information and with stunning images to boot. This looks at the history of each ape, shared traits with humans, anatomy (with phenomenal illustrations), nutrition, communication, social life, sex life, the stages of life, threats and ways to save them and their habitats. As you can tell, in-depth stuff! This book would be worth buying for the photography alone and I can spend many happy hours just flicking through this book gazing upon it's pages. If you are interested in just one of the great apes I would still recommend this book as it is so informative that you won't be disappointed and it is also fascinating to read about the relationships between the apes as well. This would make a wonderful coffee table book and whilst it is great to flick though at odd moments, you could also quite easily sit and read it from cover to cover too. This is well written, has stunning images and is beautifully presented throughout. Highly recommended indeed.
