If you're not into evolution, this book will have little value to you. It's a great idea and well researched as far as tapping into a variety of "experts" and celebrities, but it is definitely weighted in the direction of evolution. Somewhere along the line, science seems to have been forgotten: Science, the search for true knowledge. True knowledge is attained by 1.) observation, 2.) postulation and 3.) prediction and duplication. Evolution has come through the first two steps but never the third. Most entries in this collection of explanations are based on the theory of evolution as if it were fact. Sorry, until a simple one-celled form of life can be duplicated or predicted to come into existence, I'll wait for explanations that are based on facts. Nice verbiage though. I certainly don't intend to disparage the intelligence of any of these contributors. Eloquently expressed, just no meat.

Slowly pads into camp and stops when he hears the noise he russes over to help kill the rabbid monkey.
