Great, I think I ordered that book for the library. If you can't trust Jane Goodall not to plagiarize, you can't trust anyone not to do so, can you?


I wonder if this 78-year-old is being pushed to publish when she isn't quite up to the rigors of researching? Or, what if assistants did most of the work and her name appears on the book for gravitas? Whatever the reason, it's very sad.


@Jenn: I think I saw something about it being delayed, so at least you won't have to pack it up and send it back like my library did with that Opal Mehta book?

@Afton: Yeah, the whole thing is quite sad.
