No better than a high school term paper. Especially when he used Encyclopedia Brittanica as a reference. Couldn't get through it.

Author either is ignorant of the modern evolutionary synthesis or deliberately mischaracterizes it. Right off the bat the author assumes sexual reproduction is universally inferior to asexual reproduction - this is not true as sexual recombination is actually advantageous in many situations, most notably allowing for faster beneficial mutation accumulation while slowng down deleterious mutatuion accumulation, also allowing greater genetic diversity. Sexual selection also adds further selective pressures on sexually reproductive species. In other words, this book contains garden variety anti-evolution garbage, disinformation and outright lies.
