Editorial Reviews


"Written to be fully accessible and with a minimum of jargon, this covers what general readers should know about evolution for them to apply to further reading or study. Randy Moore and Janice Moore take a practical approach but also offer the theory necessary to get the point across, starting with the history of evolutionary thought (Darwin and the Beagle), extension and elaboration of Darwin's basic theories, and the impact of those who thought they knew Darwin's work but wandered off a bit by themselves. They describe the evidence for evolution in fossils, rocks and drug resistance, examine how evolution works (DNA, genetic variation and gene frequency, mate choices and coefficients of relatedness), the scale and products of evolution and the role of evolution in our daily lives."


SciTech Book News

"NSTA RecommendS≪/b> Seldom is a book so well written and so well researched that it ought to be required reading for every thinking person. Moores one-volume reference on the theory of evolution comes as close as anything I have ever encountered in my career as both a biologist and an educator. From its thorough history of the development of the theory over the course of the 18th and 19th centuries to its painstaking analysis of how evolution works and the evidence for it, this book explains in simple but accurate language everything any person needs to know to grasp the essence of one of the most important scientific explanations of all time….Not only should every high school, community, and university library have a copy of Evolution 101 but every science teacher in the country should as well."


NSTA National Science Teachers Association

"[T]his book is a valuable, concise introduction to evolutionary thought. The authors have succeeded in providing a simple explanation of evolutionary theory that should be understandable to the average reader. This book should be essential for school and public libraries, and would be a valuable resource for any biology teacher concerned about teaching this subject accurately."


The American Biology Teacher

"[E]ven younger, motivated students should be able to gain some understanding of these topics without assistance or prior knowledge. Teachers will appreciate the depth and clairity."
