Review:

Praise for the first edition "...thanks to the concise and very informative style and numerous excellent illustrations, (this book) will not only be of great benefit to all naturalists, but equally so to the interested layperson." -NEUE ZURICHER ZEITMUG (Zurich, Switzerland) "The most outstanding features of the book are the sensible as well as critical documentation in combination with numerous excellent original figures. This small book, which is of high quality from the anatomical point of view, deserves to be complimented by the paleontological viewpoint in a new editon." -EINFUHRUNG IN DIE PRIMATENKUNDE, L ANTHROPOLOGIE "...highly recommended to students of primatology and advanced physical anthropology as a tool for learning primate biology, since the writing is clear and simple and utilizes many key words over and over." -AMERICAN ANTHROPOLOGIST -- Reviews
