5.0 out of 5 stars Most intuitive approach to popgen
I've looked at a few population genetics books and this is by far the most explanatory and up-to-date with the field of population genetics that I've seen (it even includes some post-human genome sequencing era related material). This book provides in-text references to original publications, providing you with a means to start exploring the topics in more detail (very...

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed, March 15, 2009
This review is from: Principles of Population Genetics, Fourth Edition (Hardcover)
The fourth edition is excellent in that all major topics in modern population genetics are covered and with a minimal need for advanced math. However, there are numerous small errors in both the text and the answers to problems posted. These errors are not a major obstacle for advanced users, but can be confusing to students new to population genetics, and especially those that have not had a math course in recent years. I recommend it over other texts for teaching, but students and instructors should be aware that these errors exist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most intuitive approach to popgen, November 14, 2012
This review is from: Principles of Population Genetics, Fourth Edition (Hardcover)
I've looked at a few population genetics books and this is by far the most explanatory and up-to-date with the field of population genetics that I've seen (it even includes some post-human genome sequencing era related material). This book provides in-text references to original publications, providing you with a means to start exploring the topics in more detail (very handy in my own work as a young bioinformaticist). I highly recommend this book for those serious about learning population genetics.

This textbook provides readears an overview of all basic concepts and theories in population genetics, and is greatly based on both classic and current literature.
