Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Marilyn Brien
The 21st Century Science series offers broad overviews of modern scientific fields full of innumerable details. New Thinking about Evolution covers evolution beginning with Darwin, but with particular emphasis on molecular biology's contributions to the field in the last two decades. The mass of data on recent molecular discoveries combined with history and numerous biographies make this volume particularly valuable. Many introductory evolution books will discuss Darwin and Mendel but will not take the time to explain DNA, genetic drift, or quantum speciation. This book covers it all, not shying away from mathematical formulas or questions of complexity, presenting everything in a consistent, clear style. It is a reference manual, but it is also quite readable, with fascinating facts thrown in, such as, "The typical human individual has the potential to produce approximately 10605 gametes... much larger than the estimated number of atoms in the universe, about 1080." This volume does a good job explaining the latest scientific understandings without talking down to the reader. (21st Century Science) Reviewer: Marilyn Brien
