Hauntingly human-like in both appearance and behavior, the great apes have long fascinated anthropologists and laypeople alike. With their remarkable abilities to communicate, complex societies, and intricate family relationships, it is not surprising that some of these species share with us more than 98 percent of our DNA. This lavishly illustrated natural history explores the inner lives of the great apes, forging a new understanding of our closest living relatives.
