Format: Paperback
I recently completed this book as part of science/politics course. The reason that I gave it four stars is becuase I didn't feel all that comfortable giving a book 5 stars when I really have very few texts to compare it to. If you are one of these people that believe in creationism then this is a must read, it will show how truly groundbreaking Darwin's theory is.(I would personally call it a fact or law, IMHO)Even if it doesn't change your views on the subject, you will be a better person for listening to as much information as possible before making idealogical choices. This book does an excellent job of presenting you the information and leaving the ultimate judgement call in your hands.
