by Jane Goodall, Phillip Berman, Phillip Berman, Phillip Berman (With)I finally finished listening to the unabridged audiotape version of this. A charming and inspiring story.
An amazing life, and not one we'll see again - a woman with no college degree gets to do groundbreaking research, eventually gets a PhD (from Oxford!). Very religious (mostly Christian, though with smatterings of other things, even theosophy), and never exactly how you'd peg her. There's a nice encounter with a pro-animal research person (she's done a lot for animal rights, and quotes the nefarious Peter Singer with approval). She disarms the very emotional pro-animal research person (whose daughter was saved by dog research) by telling her of the pig valve in her own mother's heart - and her gratitude for the research that made it possible (and to the pig).
Very interesting - though I will now always think of her voice as being the lovely and elegant sounding actress who read the book (without any British accent).
