From the reviews:

“The volume contains an impressive collection of contributions by over 30 authors. … It is a book that will be of great value to a wide range of researchers and students in primatology, reproductive physiology, behavior, and evolutionary biology in general. The concluding chapter by Robert D. Martin is a real gem. … He identifies a number of paradoxes and unresolved issues. This final chapter is both an excellent place to begin reading Building babies, and a starting point for future research on the topic.” (John G. Fleagle, The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 88 (2), June, 2013)

“This exciting collection brings multiple perspectives to the challenge of understanding human and nonhuman primate development. … The importance of early life experiences and social relationships in shaping primate development and the explanatory power of an evolutionary perspective … are themes that run through the book. … Chapters draw on data from laboratory investigations, captive studies, and/or research on wild-living populations and highlight the insights that are gained when diverse approaches are used. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.” (S. Stinson, Choice, Vol. 50 (7), March, 2013)
