Editorial Reviews

Review

`'...well-established textbook...clearer than the first edition, and more up to date - though it is to the credit of the first edition that, ten years on, it has not dated very much at all...Maynard Smith has always been a consummate communicator, as well as a seminal thinker, and the second edition of Evolutionary Genetics is yet another testament to this rare combination of skills.'' Dylan Evans, Cell Biology International.

`'The first edition of this now well-established textbook provided the advanced undergraduate student with a clear and comprehensive introduction to those aspects of genetics that are vital to understanding evolution...a standard pedagogical work. The recent publication of a revised second edition should ensure that the book retains this position...Maynard Smith has always been a consummate communicator, as well as a seminal thinker, and the second edition of Evolutionary Genetics is yet another testament to this rare combination of skills.'' Dylan Evans, Cell Biology International 1998, vol.22, No.4, 327.

Format: Paperback
I am a Physicist trying to learn a bit about Genetics. I take the book seriously and I solve the problems and the computer proyects that the author poses. The book is highly readable and interesting (just some few type mistakes). This I warranty since I have had not the need of much consulting outside the book and this is not my field of research!!. The author goes from the basics up to some remarks of unsolved problems and controversy.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Kalel34 on February 24, 2006
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The writing is clear and the derivations, for the most part, straightforward. (The derivations of mutational heritability and Fisher's Fundamental Theorem are still somewhat obscure to me.) The problems are also excellent; the computations and manipulations are not overly laborious, but you do have to think and exercise a sound conceptual grasp of the material. Make sure you know first-year calculus before tackling this book.
