4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Steven H Propp TOP 100 REVIEWER on June 30, 2010
Format: Paperback
George Gaylord Simpson (1902-1984) was one of the most influential American paleontologists of the twentieth century. His major works include Tempo and Mode in Evolution, The Major Features of Evolution, This View of Life: The World of an Evolutionist, etc. This book was first written in 1949, then substantially revised/updated in 1967.

He states in the Prologue, "I take it as now self-evident, requiring no further special discussion, that evolution and TRUE religion are compatible. It is also sufficiently clear that science, alone, does not reach all truths, plumb all mysteries, or exhaust all values and that the place and need for true religion is still very much with us."

He observes, "New major sorts of organisms have arisen, as a rule, not as more effective followers of ways of life already occupied but as groups extending into and eventually filling new ways." He adds later, "It is noteworthy that such replacement is usually an approximate, not an exact, duplication of earlier ways of life. Conditions change and groups of later origin are never quite like those of earlier ages. Bats are only broadly, and not closely similar in habits to some, and not to all, pterodactyls.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book talks about what makes species survive or fail in complex, changing ecosystems. It should be required reading for MBA students: Mother Nature has a lot to say about business strategy. It could be required reading for any high school student: Mother Nature has a lot to say about right and wrong, and how to tell the difference. The one downside of this book is that its lessons are so generally-applicable across so many fields that it's difficult to easily pigeon-hole this book into any one field of study.
