Last month we didn't propose any book of the month. We do it now for both May and June, suggesting two books written by Tethys collaborators Maddalena Jahoda and Maddalena Bearzi.
The two Maddalenas wrote fresh and enjoyable accounts of their personal experience. A 'must read' for those interested in what happens behind the scenes of a researcher's career, and for those who want to get a little closer to the life of whales and dolphins (as well as apes).
Book of the Month: June 2009

Harvard University Press
Book of the Month: May 2009
