it was amazing
Read in January, 2008

This is a good, concise review of the scientific basis for evolution and the evidence behind it. It does a good job of distinguishing between what knowledge can and can't be gained through scientific method, shows how the theory of evolution has contributed to a wide array of scientific advances, and debunks (at a level most students should be able to grasp) a lot of common myths around the theory of evolution.

The assault on the theory of evolution, and the underlying belief that scientific knowledge can be cherry-picked and selectively ignored, constitutes a grave threat to America's future as a modern nation. This book is something everyone should read.

My only worry is that those who need it most -- educators in our public schools -- already find themselves in a political environment that discourages even public discussion of books like this.
