Our Inner Ape: A Leading Primatologist Explains Why We Are Who We Are

Our Inner Ape: A Leading Primatologist Explains Why We Are Who We Are - Frans de Waal As a leading primatologist, Mr. Waal has studied chimps and apes for years. He shares his findings on primate behaviour with the reader and draws astounding parallels to human behaviour. He shares personal experiences with the reader as well as some groundbreaking studies done in the field.

Although the book deals with science, psychology and behaviour it is insightful and not at all what I would consider a “dry read”. It really does not matter if your beliefs lean towards creationism or evolution, this book is informative and enjoyable.
