Although it is "Quantitative Genetics," there isn't any statistical genetics in here, which is pretty odd. Just a passing mention of things like chi square testing of the null hypothesis would be helpful. Maybe it's because this book was first published in 1960 and the 4th edition came out in 1996.
I happen to have the 1960 edition, and parts of it are unchanged. I compared the 1960 version to the 4th edition where the new one awkwardly referred to a recessive allele as a "gene." Well, that page had not been revised since 1960! A little editorial housekeeping would go a long way.
It's hard to give 5 stars to a $115 paperback that will end up in a zip lock bag with the pages falling out. And it's pretty thick at 450 pages, so the spine will definitely crack over time if you use it very much. Although I like the content, when I opened the box it was like getting socks at Christmas.
