Reviews
The second in a series about life sciences, this volume provides a comprehensive history of how the theory of evolution took root, grew, and flourished. . . . While the scientific ideas presented are big, the straightforward prose simplifies the concepts so that the work reads almost like a novel, and the author's use of the present tense lends immediacy. The pleasing layout, with many photos, drawings, etchings, paintings, and textboxes, animates the text even further. . . . A compelling and important history of a seminal idea.
