About this book

Stanford professor Sapolsky, research associate with Kenya's Institute of Primate Research, tells what it's like to spend 20 years studying, and living amidst, a troop of baboons. His main objective is to study the relationship between stress and disease and he reinvents the traditional field research study with this daring memoir. The realities of African field research, the people, the problems and of course the baboons are wonderfully recounted in his engaging account.
