Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Denton pursues his avowed purpose, to critique the Darwinian model of evolution, in a manner alternately fascinating and tiresome. He details legitimate questions, some as old as Darwin's theory, some as new as molecular biology, but he also distorts or misrepresents other ``problems.'' For example, he falls into the classic typological trap: organisms with the same name are all the same. He has Euparkeria as the closest possible ancestor of Archaeopteryx, thus displaying either ignorance or disregard for discoveries over the past two decades. He misunderstands or willfully misrepresents the nature of a cladogram as opposed to a phylogeny. Much of the book reads like creationist prattle, but there are also some interesting points. For informed readers. Walter P. Coombs, Jr., Biology Dept., Western New England Coll., Springfield, Mass.

    Excellent and authoritative

    In the 20 years since I first read this book, I have read numerous defenses of evolution by authors Asimov, Dawkins, Eldrege, Gould, Marsden, Mayr, Stanley, Stanfield and others, none of whom have offered such various arguements for evolution as convincingly or with as much factual support as does Micheal Denton. He does not stop there however, but also offers an even handed approach to the opposing view of the issue. This is surprising considering his atheist veiws and pro-evolution background. This is probably the best treatment of the subject available!

    Dentonian Masterpiece Makes Biology Understanable

    I am a retiree from the the vast field of applied physics. I was strong in the physical sciences but I never had much use for biology. Several years ago I purchased Denton's masterpiece. It was so understandable and well-researched it created so much interest in biology I went back to college as a senior and now have a deep interest in the bio field. Denton is an agnostic molecular biologist and though he has no axe to grind he destroys Darwinism macroevolution and points out that the theory is impossible to verify by experiment or direct observation as is normal in real science. See page 75. I now buy the books used to give them away to friends. Ray Kocot

    A little dated now but still well worth a read ...

    I feel prompted to write this review based on the other reviews I seen about this book. Unlike the other reviewers I found the book interesting, well written and interesting. I find it hard to understand the comments about it being one-sided or inaccurate, especially compared to many other books I have read on the topic. Unlike many books in this field I found this title was long on facts and short on opinions (which I happen to like but others may not). I have had a long history of reading books on both sides of this topic and I would rate this as one of the better books I have read, certainly well worth the cover price.

    A weak one sided argument

    This book only looks at one side of the issue and does not include any information that suports evolution. The author sounds ignorant by not including recent studies that were conducted before the book was published. Overall there are much more interesting books on the subject that are not so one sided.
