A fascinating book, well researched and beautifully written, but also heart breaking and appalling. It exposes how cruelly we treat such wonderful creatures and how dedicated people at the sanctuary coax them back from the dark places they had been inhabiting. Unbelievable that while most countries have banned experiments on chimps the USA still condones the practice.

It taught me a lot about resilience and the capacity to trust after traumatic times.
