A physician's life may be viewed as hard and demanding or blessed and fortunate, depending on one's perspective. Certainly, hard and demanding is the intense scientific and clinical training period, lasting over a decade past college. Adding to work demands is the natural and trained desire to never err in diagnosis or treatment that might add to a patient's suffering. So how is a physician's life blessed? Blessed is the physician granted permission by patients to enter into their lives at the most private and deep level. This permission is granted in part from the patients' urgent need to understand and treat their illness and pain, but also out of trust earned from years of confidential interaction. With this trust, the physician may be witness to extraordinary challenges, dramatic events, and remarkable courage, often in remote and isolated locations. These vivid characters who speak to you in Lion in the Night have a hard-earned truth to tell the readers. Some of these truths are spoken outright, but most are acted out in the drama of their decisions and lives. I hope the characters' voices and my witness to their struggles may add a new lens to the reader's eye into the meaning of life.

From flat-topped acacia trees to great migrations of wildebeest across an edgeless expanse of grass, the Serengeti is one of the world's most renowned ecosystems. And at the apex of this incredible landscape prowls its seemingly indomitable ruler: the Serengeti lion. These majestic mammals are skillful hunters, iconic, and integral to Serengeti health. But they also commit infanticide; eat local people and destroy local livelihoods; are a source of profit for those who make money shooting or conserving them (and sometimes both); and are in constant danger from the encroachments of another species: humans. With Lions in the Balance, celebrated lion researcher and conservationist Craig Packer takes us back into the complex, tooth-and-claw worlds of lion conservation and behavior. A sequel to Packer'sInto Africa—which gave many readers their first experience of field work in Africa, of Tanzanian roads, of long hours spent identifying lions by their ear marks and scars, and of the joys of bootlegged Grateful Dead tapes beneath savannah moons—this diary-based chronicle of adventure, real-life danger, and corruption will both alarm and entertain. Packer's story offers a look into the future of the lion, one in which the politics of conservation will require survival strategies far more creative and powerful than any now possessed by the citizens of the savannah—humans included. Packer is sure to infuriate poachers, politicians, and conservationists alike as he minces no words about the problems he sees. But with a narrative stretching from Arusha to Washington, DC, and marked by Packer's signature humor and incredible candor,Lions in the Balance is a tale of courage against impossible odds, a masterly blend of science and storytelling, and an urgent call to action that will captivate a pride of readers.

It is especially designed to help parents and young men who are struggling and need to see and face the reality of growing up.
