Jungle Jack: My Wild Life by Jack Hanna

Jungle Jack is the completely revised and updated authorized biography of one of our most beloved zookeepers, Jack Hanna.

When the Columbus Zoo hired Jack Hanna as executive director in 1978, he inherited an outdated zoo where all the animals were caged and the buildings were run down. With the kind of work ethic and enthusiasm he's become known for, Hanna brought new life to the zoo, transforming it into the state-of-the-art facility it is today. It was an achievement for which he was well prepared: Hanna was only eleven years old when he got his first job with animals-cleaning cages for the family vet. As a newlywed, he and his wife, Suzi, ran a pet shop and petting zoo, and he later worked for a wildlife adventure outfit. You've probably seen Hanna as a wildlife correspondent with his animal friends on The Late Show with David Letterman, Larry King Live, Entertainment Tonight, and Hannity & Colmes. Full of unpredictable animal escapades and the occasional tragedy, this book takes readers on an enjoyable safari through the life of "Jungle" Jack Hanna.

I have always been a fan of Jack Hanna and what he has done for the Columbus community. That was my main reason for wanting to read the book. What you learn is how REAL Jack is, not that there was ever a doubt and how GREAT of a person he, and his family are. The world has been blessed by this family!

I would recommend this book for both men and women. Jack Hanna has always been one of my favorite people to read about and this book has given me more insite about all of good he has done for not only the Columbus Zoo but all around the world. He is a great humanitarian where all animals are concerned.

For someone like me who loves animals and plans to be a zookeeper, I loved this book. It was a great book, full of stories from Jack Hanna's past. There was even some light-hearted humor and several mentions of conservation of wildlife in Africa and other places, that are good for people to know. Jack Hanna is a great zookeeper, and I was so excited when this book came out. I just couldnt put it down. So, if you detest animals, zookeepers, and well, autobiographies, dont buy this book. But otherwise, its a fantastic read!
