Stephen Jay Gould, Professor of Geology, Harvard University, and columnist for Natural History Magazine ________ "Noel Rowe's book is a wonderful compilation; not only a collection of high-quality photos, but an up-to-date reference on taxonomy, distribution, conservation status, social organization, ecology and behaviour. It is rare that something advertised as a 'pictorial guide' can in fact be recommended as a serious source for students. I myself devoured it over a weekend, and I return to it again and again - to check on a fact, to read for pleasure, or just to gaze with pleasure on those superb photos." Colin Groves, PhD, Director of the Biological Anthropology Program, Australian National University, Canberra, Australia ________ "The Pictorial Guide to the Living Primates is truly a tribute to some of the most fascinating, and most endangered, animals whose world we are fortunate to share." Jack Hanna, Director of the Columbus Zoo ________ "A handsome, comprehensive, and most useful book." Peter Mathiessen, Author of African Silences and many novels. _______ "A wonderful classroom tool, usable by people of all ages wanting to learn about the wonderfully diverse world of primates." Shirley McGreal, Chairwoman of the International Primate Protection League. ________ "Not only is the book an invaluable reference, it is a delight to look at and read." George Page, Executive Editor for the PBS television show Nature. ________ "...a superb book, attractive, insightful and highly useful. It will surely remain a basic reference source for many years" George Schaller, Author of The Year of the Gorilla. ________ "Gimme!" signs Washoe. Washoe is the first chimpanzee to be taught to communicate with humans using American Sign Language. She was shown the book by Roger Fouts of the Chimpanzee and Human Communication Institute at Central Washington University, Ellensburg, Washington. ________ "... an authoritative, through, and extremely useful guide to humanities closest living relatives" E. O. Wilson, Pellegrino University Professor at Harvard
