Reason for Hope: A Spiritual Journey Reviews
I could not put this book down, and it changed my life for the better, forever. Jane's story is astonishing, and her power to tell it is both clear and charismatic. She is a master. You can not emerge without both hope, and a sense of solidarity within humanity, after following her journey to the year 2001 (when it was written). Buy, enjoy, and find the higher side of yourself awakened to an optimism that is critically neededl in the world today.
Jane Goodall's very personal account of her life, values, convictions and evolving insights results in a compelling case for human spirituality and its role in shaping a better world. Eloquently written, from the heart, and underscored with gems of her poetry, the autobiography compels the reader to introspection and self-reflection, to visualize your own life purpose and become a better person. Because that is what Earth needs, what people, animals and the environment need. In this particular book, it is rather Jane, more than the chimps, who becomes the window to a better understanding of our human nature and its potential to rise above evil. A must-read source of hope.
Jane Goodall is a great writer and she really gives you a feel for what it was like to have been her. You want to know what happens to her chimps. I good read for any animal lover.
A beautiful, heartfelt, inspiring and poignant memoir of Jane Goodall's remarkable life. From her nature and animal-loving youth in Bournemouth, England, to the extraordinary adult years she spent researching chimpanzees in Gombe, Africa and ultimately serving as one of the world's most preeminent ambassadors for animal rights and conservation, Reason for Hope offers deep insight into the world of Goodall - her triumphs and despairs as well as her own spiritual odyssey and the powerful roles that nature, beauty and God play in her life.
Inspiring for our times; an important read. Excellent value from seller.
I found this an enjoyable read, although Ms. Goodall's pacing is at times a bit slow to follow. Her anecdotes regarding her work really help to define who she is and why she's made working with primates her life's work.
Jane Goodall is a very special human being and generous beyond belief. She has lived her way through many of life's hardest trials and challenges but keeps her focus in spite of it all.. Not only that but she shares so openly the pathway to regain your footing when tragedy and death do their best to flatten you.
I was always fascinated by Jane Goodall - I have to admit, I didn't know the details of her life and found the book to be more of an autobiography. Here I learned about Jane from her childhood, to how she was chosen to observe the Chimps and what those initial goals were, to how she experienced nature and the chimps. It really made me want to spend a year in the forest and reconnect with how humans have lived for thousands of years. It all seemed like such a soulful experience. Living in a modern city society, it's nice to be reminded that we used to be more connected to the earth, the sights, smells, animals, weather. Easy to read and highly recommended!
