The book I read was great, because it was a very simple, short, and easy to read. But it did feel like reading a timeline because almost every 3 sentences have a date.It goes from one event to the next without using much detail. I enjoyed the couple of pictures that were in the book, to help me visualize what Jane did, and how close she got to the chimpanzees. I didn't like, whenever Jane had a new love they would only describe their relationship in less than a page. Some stories were written with too much information and some were written poorly. I think reading this book is great if you are just beginning to learn about Jane Goodall, because it’s basic and simple, and if you want more information, you should read one of Jane Goodall’s autobiographies. This book seemed to be for 5th-6th graders, because it wasn’t challenging or have enough detail. I learned a lot about Jane Goodall and the great things she discovered, and researched. She has become a new career role model for me and inspires me to be a great veterinarian. I would recommend this book for people who like easy and simple reads,with lots of information with little details.

I read Dr. Goodall's book "Reason for Hope" last year and loved it. When I had the opportunity to write a paper at school on a famous person from a psychological perspective, I chose Dr. Goodall. My research time was a bit short so I downloaded this ebook. Between the author's chronological account of Dr. Goodall's life and "Reason for Hope", I made a perfect score on the paper. This book went into the personal life of Dr. Goodall a little more than "Reason for Hope" in a respectful way, which I enjoyed. It helping me formulate a basic psychological framework for her personality based on her childhood and those who influenced her throughout her life.
