Overview

This clear, lively, and systematic presentation examines the scientific evidence for evolution and reaches for the widest possible audience—from scientific minds to those with no science background at all. Forcefully rejecting creationist objections to evolution and including a critique of Intelligent Design, it argues that they are part of a larger social agenda. With discussion that celebrates the fascination to be found in studying the diversity and complexity of life, this examination suggests with some urgency that the science of evolution is crucial to the existence of science itself.

This is a book that is simultaneously boring and disheartening, as it seems to be attempting to hijack evolutionary theory in the cause of the author's agenda...which appears to be communism. The author seems to assume that evolution supports her particular political theory, which is a terrible misreading of evolution, a theory of biology that does not support any political theory. She also makes weak arguments in support of evolution, and does little to further the cause of good science.
