"Brandon's book is useful because it focuses on natural selection and adaptation, two concepts central to evolutionary and ecologic studies.... He is genuinely interested in how these concepts can be used to understand evolution, and, more importantly, explain the phenomena we observe in our organisms."--American Journal of Physical Anthropology
"Brandon's book is useful because it focuses on natural selection and adaptation, two concepts central to evolutionary and ecologic studies....

German, American Journal of Physical Anthropology
"Throughout this book, Brandon sustains an in-depth reflection on the concepts associated with this fundamental theory of evolutionary biology.... Brandon thus gives to the principle of natural selection a universal explanatory power, insisting on the fact that even if they give the impression of answering teleological questions, the different stages of the `adaptationist explanation' turn up nothing but mechanist processes."--L. Granjon, Mammalia
