This clear, lively, and systematic presentation examines the scientific evidence for evolution and reaches for the widest possible audience—from scientific minds to those with no science background at all. Forcefully rejecting creationist objections to evolution and including a critique of Intelligent Design, it argues that they are part of a larger social agenda. With discussion that celebrates the fascination to be found in studying the diversity and complexity of life, this examination suggests with some urgency that the science of evolution is crucial to the existence of science itself.

"Well-written, concise, and comprehensive...Accessible to the general reader and uncompromising in its logic and accuracy."  —Kevin Padian, president, National Center for Science Education and professor of biology, University of California–Berkeley

"[Uses] the errors of creationism . . . to help explain and contrast the principles of evolutionary biology. It's fascinating."  —Pharyngula

"[An] up-to-date scientific case for evolution and against creationism (including 'intelligent design')."  —The Skeptic Annotated Bibliography

"Recommended for public libraries and undergraduate collections."  —e-streams.com

"A lively, entertaining and even important book . . . highly recommend[ed] for all academic collections: college, university and even high school and middle school."  —Confessions of a Science Librarian (weblog)

"[Ardea Skybreak] tells her truth in a documented and clear way that will inspire in many students a new interest in science."  —KLIATT
