-- Professor David Snoke, Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Pittsburgh
"In The Edge of Evolution Michael Behe carefully assesses the evidence of what Darwin's mechanism of random mutation and selection can achieve in well documented cases, and shows that even in those cases that maximize its power as a creative force it has only been able to generate very trivial examples of evolutionary change. Could such an apparently impotent and mindless force really have built the sophisticated molecular devices found throughout nature? The answer, he insists, is no. The only common-sense explanation is intelligent design."
-- Michael Denton, M.D., Ph.D., author of Nature's Destiny
"In crystal-clear prose Behe systematically shreds the central dogma of atheistic science, the doctrine of the random universe. This book, like the natural phenomena it so elegantly describes, shows the unmistakable signs of a very deep intelligence at work."
-- JEffrey M. Schwartz, M.D., Research Psychiatrist, UCLA, and author of The Mind & The Brain
"Until the past decade and the genomics revolution, Darwin's theory rested on indirect evidence and reasonable speculation. Now, however, we have begun to scratch the surface of direct evidence, of which this book offers the best possible treatment. Though many critics won't want to admit it, The Edge of Evolution is very balanced, careful, ¬and devastating. A tremendously important book."
-- Dr. Philip Skell, Evan Pugh Professor of Chemistry, Emeritus, at Pennsylvania State University, and member of the National Academy of Sciences
"With this book, Michael Behe shows that he is truly an independent thinker of the first order. In a day when the media present all issues in the football metaphor as two teams fighting, the intelligent design debate is presented simplistically as authors who are lapdogs for young-earth creationists versus evolutionists who are lapdogs for atheists. Michael Behe is no lapdog. He carefully examines the data of evolution, along the way making an argument for universal common descent that will make him no friends among young-earth creationists, and draws in new facts, especially the data on malaria, that have not been part of the public debate at all up to now. This book will take the intelligent design debate into new territory and represents a unique contribution on the longstanding question of philosophy: can observation of the physical world guide our thinking about religious questions?"

This book provides convincing proof that a Darwinian mechanism for evolution cannot explain the creation of complex life on earth, & provides robust evidence for design. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Spacious Galaxy
I have studied Biology in College and as the author I bought into Darwinism. As I read the author's evidence my long held belief began to break down. Read morePublished 2 months ago by karl F
This book is a very interesting example of critical and free rationalism. It is both scientifically solid and easy to read.Published 3 months ago by Atilio
It's time someone stood up and said the whole "Darwinism theology" is a crock....It takes more than DNA for a cell to function. Read morePublished 4 months ago by MagnoliaJane
Excellent and extremely important book! If you want to know the actual limits of evolution by mutation and natural selection, it's in here (and it ain't pretty for the Darwinist). Read morePublished 4 months ago by Steve J. Williams
Succinct arguments; Behe wanders into philosophical ground to accomplish this feat. Definitely a must read. Behe is in rare form here.Published 8 months ago by Tim
Once again, Dr. Behe presents information to which the neo-Darwinists can only respond with calumny. Read morePublished 8 months ago by troglodyte
Great read for the intelligent ,open-minded student of the origin of life. It should be required reading for all college science students.Published 9 months ago by James Baker
This book was sometimes hard to follow, but Behe does a good job of explaining the implications of the science so most people can understand it. Evolution has its limits. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Kevin from Texas
