Review:

"A concise and engaging summary of modern evolutionary theory."―The Midwest Book Review

"Provides a concise and engaging summary of modern evolutionary theory, for students and general readers with little or no formal training in science."―SciTech Book News, December 1999

"The book is a concise, lucid introduction to evolutionary biology for the layperson. Among the valuable resources is a discussion of molecular biology that contains references to 1996 and so is fairly up to date. The drawings and charts make the text easier for a nonspecialist to follow."―Karen Bartelt, Reports of the National Center for Science Education. May/June 2000

"Under a single cover, a well-balanced and generally readable summary of modern evolutionary theory. . . Well-illustrated."―Northeastern Naturalist, Issue 8/1, 2001
