Editorial Reviews

Review

 “Following in Darwin’s footsteps, Miller makes the slam-dunk case for why, in light of our origins, humans are still special.” (Edward J. Larson, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Evolution: The Remarkable History of a Scientific)

“Absorbing, lucid, and engaging. An ELOQUENT and deeply grounded case that it was evolution that gave us our humanity.” (Ursula Goodenough, professor of biology at Washington University in St. Lewis and author of The Sacr)

“Here is a clear-eyed look at the use and sometime misuse of evolutionary theory.” (Kevin Padian, professor of biology at the University of California, Berkeley)

“Fascinating.... [The Human Instinct] confronts both lay and professional misconceptions about evolution from both scientific and philosophical perspectives.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“Insightful.... [Miller’s] universe is a kaleidoscope of dazzling evolutionary possibilities.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))
