While I certainly cannot find fault with the content of this book --after all who can argue with Ms. Goodall's genuine desire for a better world for every living thing--I found the writing so tedious, dull, simplistic, and downright boring that I could hardly bear to keep plodding through. If it weren't for my book club choosing this, I would have quit mid-way. Ms. Goodall apparently has absolutely no sense of humor and takes herself way too seriously (even comparing herself to Saint Paul). Her beliefs are described in banal anecdotal lists (humans are cruel--Hitler, etc. but also good--Mother Theresa, etc.) with nothing new or intellectually stimulating to think about and no scientific evidence or research data provided to support her arguments. She just drones on and on! I couldn't wait to finish and get back to some good writing.
