My name is Susanna Lee and recently my daughter Monica, who has a passion for animals, asked me to help her find information on becoming a vet. Surprisingly, I couldn’t find a book that contains up-to-date information and gives a real insight into what it takes to become a vet.

Most importantly, I wanted my daughter to be able to decide for herself if veterinary medicine was truly the career for her based on getting the most rounded picture possible – the good, the bad and everything in between. So being a journalist and writer for over 20 years, I took up the challenge to create that missing book!

In How to Become a Veterinarian, I share the latest practical information available, but also offer a human perspective on life as a vet and what it’s really like to work towards that goal. This book covers: A History Of Veterinary Practice The Different Types of Vets Training to be a Vet Qualifications You Will Need What Veterinary Students Are Taught Life as a vet Is Veterinary Medicine the Right Career for You?

World-renowned primatologist, conservationist, and humanitarian Dr. Jane Goodall’s account of her life among the wild chimpanzees of Gombe is one of the most enthralling stories of animal behavior ever written. Her adventure began when the famous anthropologist Dr. Louis Leakey suggested that a long-term study of chimpanzees in the wild might shed light on the behavior of our closest living relatives.

Accompanied by only her mother and her African assistants, she set up camp in the remote Gombe Stream Chimpanzee Reserve in Tanzania. For months the project seemed hopeless; out in the forest from dawn until dark, she had but fleeting glimpses of frightened animals.

But gradually she won their trust and was able to record previously unknown behavior, such as the useand even the making of tools, until then believed to be an exclusive skill of man. As she came to know the chimps as individuals, she began to understand their complicated social hierarchy and observed many extraordinary behaviors, which have forever changed our understanding of the profound connection between humans and chimpanzees.

In the tradition of Jane Goodall and Dian Fossey, Robert Sapolsky, a foremost science writer and recipient of a MacArthur Genius Grant, tells the mesmerizing story of his twenty-one years in remote Kenya with a troop of Savannah baboons. I had never planned to become a savanna baboon when I grew up; instead, I had always assumed I would become a mountain gorilla, writes Robert Sapolsky in this witty and riveting chronicle of a scientist’s coming-of-age in remote Africa.

An exhilarating account of Sapolsky’s twenty-one-year study of a troop of rambunctious baboons in Kenya, A Primate’s Memoir interweaves serious scientific observations with wry commentary about the challenges and pleasures of living in the wilds of the Serengetifor man and beast alike.

Over two decades, Sapolsky survives culinary atrocities, gunpoint encounters, and a surreal kidnapping, while witnessing the encroachment of the tourist mentality on the farthest vestiges of unspoiled Africa. As he conducts unprecedented physiological research on wild primates, he becomes evermore enamored of his subjectsunique and compelling characters in their own rightand he returns to them summer after summer, until tragedy finally prevents him.

The first edition of Frans de Waal’s Chimpanzee Politics was acclaimed not only by primatologists for its scientific achievement but also by politicians, business leaders, and social psychologists for its remarkable insights into the most basic human needs and behaviors.

Still considered a classic, this edition is a detailed and thoroughly engrossing account of rivalries and coalitionsactions governed by intelligence rather than instinct. As we watch the chimpanzees of Arnhem behave in ways we recognize from Machiavelli (and from the nightly news), de Waal reminds us again that the roots of politics are older than humanity.

ISBN: 978-0888390219

Further research into Middle America bigfoot sightings indicates a strong connection between bigfoot and Native Americans, and witness descriptions show a strong human likeness. The latest research from the author of the groundbreaking The Hoopa Project: Bigfoot Encounters in California named 2008 Bigfoot Book of the Year by Cryptomundo.Com.

Dave Paulides brings his law-enforcement investigative and analytical skills to an expanded area of research: the counties in Northern California that have reported the greatest numbers of bigfoot occurrences, and beyond to Minnesota and Oklahoma. Gaining access to many people who have never discussed their bigfoot experiences publicly before now, the author obtains intriguing details that broaden our perception of the elusive creature; and his subsequent analysis leads to the discovery of a strong and consistent link between bigfoot and the Native American community.

The expert interview and artistic skills of forensic artist Harvey Pratt help to define the creatures described by the witnesses – – once again with astonishing and illuminating results. The presentation of startling new forensic evidence indicates that there truly is an as-yet-unidentified primate living in the wilds of North America, and the author hints at new data on the horizon that will finally provide the tantalizing truth about the existence of bigfoot in North America.

A handful of openminded biologists and anthropologists counter the tabloids Pyle studies, while rogue Forest Service employees and loggers swear of a vast conspiracy to deepsix true stories of unknown, upright hominoid apes among us.

He attends Sasquatch Daze, where he meets scientists, hunters, and others who have devoted their lives to the search, only to realize that these guys don’t want to find Bigfootthey want to be Bigfoot!

In The Discovery of the Sasquatch, biologist John Bindernagel reconsiders much of the prevailing knowledge regarding the sasquatch. Illustrating evidence which contradicts the widely held perception of the sasquatch as merely a cultural phenomenona myth, hallucination, imaginary being, misidentified bear, or hoaxhe explains why criteria such as testability, consistency, predictive power, and simplicity actually support an alternative hypothesis: the sasquatch as an extant mammal.

The Discovery of the Sasquatch offers important understanding of both the strengths and weaknesses of Science as it is practiced in the modern world a book that will, I believe, take its place beside the works of Thomas Kuhn and Michael Polanyi as a lasting contribution to philosophy of science.” David A.Walsh, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Psychology, University of Southern California”John Bindernagel has given us a closely argued, cogent, convincing explanation why the evidence has not brought widespread acknowledgment that sasquatches are extant.

Author: by Jane Goodall

ISBN: 978-0547336954

View on Amazon

Through aWindow is the dramatic saga of thirty years in the life of an intimately intertwined communityone that reads like a novel, but is one of the most important scientific works ever published. The community is Gombe, on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, where the principal residents are chimpanzees and one extraordinary woman who is their student, protector, and historian.

In her classic In the Shadow of Man, Jane Goodall wrote of her first ten years at Gombe. In Through a Window she brings the story up to the present, painting a more complete and vivid portrait of our closest relatives.

We watch young Figan’s relentless rise to power and old Mike’s crushing defeat. We learn how one mother rears her children to succeed and another dooms hers to failure. We witness horrifying murders, touching moments of affection, joyous births, and wrenching deaths.

In short, we see every emotion known to humans stripped to its essence. In the mirror of chimpanzee life, we see ourselves reflected.

16. The Locals: A Contemporary Investigation of the Bigfoot/Sasquatch Phenomenon

Bigfoots ARE The Locals.They live here. They were here before we humans showed up on the continent and they will likely outlast us. This is a bigfoot book yet it probes much deeper than a simple treatment of the hackneyed question of Does Bigfoot Exist?

This book delves into such questions as why bigfoots exist, why they behave as they do, and why they have not yet been, and may never be dragged into the spotlight of science and the media. And don’t look to science for answers, because science is currently unequipped to shed any light on this profound anthropological mystery.

The author’s personal experiences in investigation and experimentation of the bigfoot hypothesis are chronicled. Frightening and humorous personal experiences are detailed in the manner of the genre we know of as the bigfoot book. We have a lot to learn about The Locals and there is even more we could learn from The Locals.
