A Primate's Memoir by Robert M. Sapolsky

The writing style is very good, very enjoyable for me. The author provides enough detail to describe exactly what is going on without repeating things or wasting time going into too much detail or providing a lot of extra details. The chapters are clear and focused making things easy to follow and keeping my interest up.

Still haven't finished, and beginning to sweat it a bit, but wanted to comment that this is something I also appreciate about Sapolsky.  I have a feeling he's also an amazing teacher.  I'm almost certain I could listen to a lecture from him on brain chemistry without falling asleep.

He is! Some of his Stanford lectures are available on Youtube. :grin:

Off I go then.

Nice. Is it good or bad that he looks and sounds like I expected from reading the two books?
