This year, we run the risk of drowning in books about evolution and Darwin. This little book is a truly
useful primer. Mark Pallen has pulled together a vast array of information, from early pre-Darwinian
ideas about organic change to an entertaining section on evolution on cult TV. He has even got it right
about the role of Galapagos finches in Darwin s thinking, and cites much useful literature for anyone
interested in exploring further. He does not pull any punches in the controversy of evolution versus
religion but tells it like it really is. It s a worthwhile book for anyone wanting a quick review or an
easy start into the way the world works. --Galapagos News
