over all it is a good book. it is made up of a 20 or so short essays grouped together into chapters so..... i made the mistake of thinking that if i read them out of order then i wouldn't under stand the book--not true, i thought some of the topics where very intresting and others not so much. im glad i read the whole thing but to do it over again i would only read about 3/4 of the essays. good facts about natural history and evolution but no new or exciting ideas.
