Book Title: The Trials of Life: A natural history of animal behaviour

Author: David Attenborough

Book Description:

I have always been intrigued by why animals do the things they do.  I could never learn enough about how organisms interact with each other and their environment, and now I get paid to do this!  Natural history books and documentaries fuelled this passion.  David Attenborough is a fantastically engaging naturalist, and has made an invaluable contribution to bringing biology to the general public.  This book beautifully introduces many of the topics that are the driving force behind my research.
