Chimpanzees and Humans a lot in common

Those who study chimpanzees are often amazed completely with the abilities of that species. They tend to be able to raise their level of awareness and concentration to a completely higher level than we ever believed. Mankind comes with such feelings of superiority and belief that humans are some divine creation and are superior in every way, yet we are finding we are not as alone as we once thought with regards to intelligence of carbon based bipods. I wish to recommend a book to you, which will help illustrate my points:

"Next of Kin" By Roger Fouts.

This is a great book for anyone who assumes that man is the only species on this Planet, which can reason, think, plan and understand. The sub title of this book is "What Chimpanzees Have Taught Me About Who We Are." The book is completely fascinating, very well written and will shock you. I enjoyed it and would also recommend it to anyone who is a biologist, geneticist, zoologist or thinking man. It will change the way you see things, and help you understand who we are and what our place is on this planet. Also you should definitely check out the author's web site;

Sometimes mankind can be so blind as our perceptions have shaped our belief systems thru stories, tall tales and religion. This book will open your eyes to what else it out there that we do not know. Read the book, peruse their website and think about it.
