I have read the other two more positive reviews of this book, and I am in shock & awe! The book has the potential to be quite interesting and informative, and many of the photos themselves are both remarkable and fascinating.

But the text itself is almost impossible to read, because the font is a light grey color against a white background, and so there is almost no discernible contrast. And by the way, my eyes are just fine...the problem is the outrageous book design, notably the font choice.

Thus I cannot recommend this book to Amazon's readers, due to this fatal flaw.

Images far more emotional than specimen photographs...ideas far deeper than explanatory captions: this is an exquisite collection of photos and mini-essays that evokes wonder at the complexity and strangeness and sheer randomness of the natural world. The book works at several levels: as a handsome "coffee-table" book (yikes, but it could suffice if you just want to look at beautifully composed images); as a very informative and accessible read on Darwin's ideas and their physical manifestation in nature; and as an ongoing dialogue between a photographer and a writer, each using her particular medium powerfully to convey something splendid to the other, and vicariously to us as the lucky eavesdroppers.

This should be a beautiful, educational book. Indeed, the photos are wonderful and the narrative excellent. But for some reason, the editors choose to use teeny font in a grayscale. I could barely read it without high, intense lighting, and even then it was downright painful.

Please, if you reprint this, use a decent-sized font in BLACK!

'Evidence of Evolution' advances the "coffee table book" several generations in both intelligence and design. The art work photography is stunning; the text is captivating. Here is earth's life story, from newborn sea horse to prehistoric tortoise, written in prose both factually accurate and crystal clear, without ever being dull. Finally, a serious science book created to educate and charm the general reader. A timely salute to the 150th anniversary of Charles Darwin's seminal, On the Origin of the Species, 'Evidence of Evolution' is the ideal gift book for any occasion. -- Edward Hannibal, novelist.
