9780713687118: Penguins of the World, 2007 publication

Looking like a group of elegantly dressed gentlemen at a formal function, penguins remind us of ourselves. According to author Wayne Lynch, part of our curiosity about these stocky little birds is related to just that -- their almost human behaviors. Like us, they live in communities where they play and fight with one another, steal from each other, hunt for food, quarrel with their mates, form lasting pair bonds, separate, commit infidelities and care for and sometimes neglect or even kill their offspring. Day in and day out, their lives seem unnervingly like our own.

In Penguins of the World, however, Lynch suggests that the life of a penguin goes well beyond the realm of our common shared experience. In the past eight years, Lynch has traveled more than 130,000 miles (210,000 km) to Antarctica, the Galápagos Islands, Argentina, Chile, New Zealand and a dozen remote island clusters in the tempestuous Southern Ocean to observe, study and enjoy this remarkable bird. A self-proclaimed "penguin addict," Lynch has determined that penguin's are more complex and far richer in adaptations and behaviors than humans ever imagined. Penguins of the World is Lynch's record of a journey of discovery.

About the Author:

In 1979, at the age of 32, Dr Wayne Lynch left a career in emergency medicine to work full-time as a science writer and wildlife photographer. Today he is the author of award winning documentaries and books, including A is for Arctic, Bears, Bears, Bears, Penguins! and Loons as well as being a popular guest lecturer. His photography credits include hundreds of magazine covers, thousands of calendar shots and tens of thousands of images published in more than 30 countries.

Lynch is a Fellow of the internationally recognized Explorers Club, headquartered in New York City. Fellows are people who have actively participated in exploration or have substantially enlarge the scope of human knowledge through scientific achievements with published reports, books and articles. In 1997, Lynch was also elected as a Fellow to the Arctic Institute of North America, in recognition of his contributions to the knowledge of polar and subpolar regions.

From Library Journal:

Of the numerous books about penguins, this is one of the better ones with 123 superb color photographs and an authoritative text. Lynch, a Canadian writer and explorer, has chapters on penguin species, biology, habitats, courtship, breeding, family life, feeding, and maturation. The penguin hot spots of the Falkland and South Georgia islands are Lynch's primary focus, while penguins restricted to South Africa, the Galapagos, Australia, New Zealand, and Antarctica do not come in for as heavy coverage. Nevertheless, libraries where titles such as Roger Tory Peterson's Penguins (Houghton Mifflin, 1979) and Pauline Reilly's Penguins of the World (Oxford, 1994) are in constant demand may want this somewhat pricey book. Warmly recommended.?Henry T. Armistead, Free Lib. of Philadelphia.
