Editorial Review

Gathering insights from his seven-decade career, the renowned biologist Ernst Mayr argues that evolution is now to be considered not a theory but a fact--and that "there is not a single Why? question in biology that can be answered adequately without a consideration of evolution."Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Amazing what "educated" people will believe
WOW!It is still incredible to see what sort of fairy tales people still believe even after all the evidence that these people refuse to open their eyes to because it doesn't fit their "religion" of evolution.Everybody knows that evolution is a fact, but Evolution is such a silly idea it's hard to believe there is anybody left on Earth that has even a grade school education that still worships at the feet of that idiot Darwin.WOW!

5-0 out of 5 stars My, Oh Mayr!
This book is a wonderful read for any semi-educated person. I've been looking for a concise, not-too offensive (to Christians), easy, but also detailed introduction to evolution to recommend to people and I couldn't have imagined a better example than What Evolution Is. My only complaint is that I found the provided glossary to be insufficient for those with no previous Biological knowledge.
5-0 out of 5 stars Evolution in a Nutshell
This is probably the most concise, comprehensive, and easy-to-understand book on Darwinian evolution on the market. The author is very knowledgeable, to the point, matter of fact, and insightful. I loved it. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars OK but who's going to read this ?
I have a PhD in biochemistry (meaning I can understand a reasonable amount of jargon) and hoped that with this book I'd be able to understand what modern developmental biology (in particular developmental genetics, "evo-devo", etc.) is about, but this book bored me to death.There is no continuum, no logical progression in the teaching.When you reach the end of a chapter you've forgotten what it was about.I admire the central concept and the work but, frankly, as a book it's completely missed.It is not a textbook, it is not a popularization book, it's a 600+pages small print dissertation.Who wants to read that ?Who has the time to go to the library and check the details of any of the hundreds of referenced articles (all of them are treated only superficially) ? Not students, not professional scientists (their time would be better spent reading review articles), not laypersons.Who then ?

5-0 out of 5 stars New ways of thinking about Biology
I think that Mary Jane West-Eberhard is trying to formulate a new Shyntesis in Biology, she is trying to include Development in Neo-Darwinism. Her book makes the difference in the role that gives to phenotype, every biologist needs to read it to express his/her own opinions. Really deserves to be read.

5-0 out of 5 stars jump starting a revolutiion
Darwin developed his theory of evolution without knowing much about the mechanisms of heredity. These mechanisms were rediscovered in the 1900's as part of the science of genetics. By the 1930's a school of evolutionary thinkers came to the realization that Darwin's theory could be further developed by recasting it in terms of population genetics. The resulting synthetic theory of evolution has ruled mainstream biology ever since. But genetics has not stood still in the meantime. The rise of molecular biology has made possible a new discipline, evo-devo which seeks to explain how the genes control development. Evo-devo has developed a new approach to evolution. While the synthetic theory tended to see evolution as a matter of the loss of old genes within a population or the fixation of new ones, evo-devo has found that large parts of the genome are conserved over vast periods of time and shared by widely divergent phyla. Evolution has produced diversity by modifying the mechanisms which control the expression of these ancient genes. New ideas are now required to explain how this kind of diversity evolves. West-Eberhard proposes that genetic control mechanisms can be exposed to selection by the phenotypic adaptation of organisms to new kinds of environmemt. This phenotypic adaptation ultimately drives evolution. The germ of this idea had been put forward by J. Baldwim more than one hundred years ago but neither Baldwin or anybody else knew about evo-devo and the idea had little influence. Now its time may have come.

2-0 out of 5 stars I wonder why this was even published
This has got to be the worst solution manual I've encountered. My edition is copyrighted in 2004, and it still seems like it is a very rough draft. Although some of the solutions come out to be quite clear, for every one of those there is at least one that either solves the problem with unnecessary complexity oris downright wrong. This causes a lot of confusion and self-doubt for the student. Errors of this type and frequency are tolerable if they come from one's mentor, but when the solution manual comes from a publisher with such reknown as McGraw-Hill, I would expect it to be thoroughly edited and proofread. I would definitely not recommend this item unless they have a revised edition published. In the meantime, one would be much better off asking his or her professor or TA for the solutions, and discussing with them as necessary.

4-0 out of 5 stars Wanna get an A in Genetics?
Although this solution guide has a few mistakes, it helped me tremendously in Genetics.I got an A only because I had the answer and explanation to EVERY question in the textbook.It gave me a clear understanding of the basic concepts and it had plenty of diagrams.Barely anyone in my class had the solutions manual, so I felt like I had an advantage over everybody...and I found out I was right when I got my report card! :-) ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
I've read several dinosaur books and I've generally found them to be very good. This one, along with "The Complete Dinosaur", ranks as one of my favorites. The reason I was interested in this book was that I was looking for something that focused on the evolution of dinosaurs and how the various taxa of dinosaurs related to each other. I was also looking for something at an intermediate level. This book exceeded my expectations on all fronts.
5-0 out of 5 stars Clades of the past
"Dinosaur!"The word still makes children's faces bright with excitement."Can we go to the museum, Dad?" - and a golf game is set aside.The authors note how pervasive the dinosaur has become in our society.We live in "dinosaur-crazy times with documentaries, colouring books and films - "we have thrice feasted on Jurassic Park movies".The authors feel this familiarity is all to the good - we learn something of Nature's ways from some of this exposure.They want us to take the next step and learn something of what the professional paleontologist does to bring the wealth of information about dinosaurs to our ken.We also need to understand what conditions prevailed while dinosaurs dominated the planet for 160 million years.That's a real success story and it deserves our attention.
4-0 out of 5 stars The Evolution and Extinction of the Dinosaurs
The Evolution and Extinction of the Dinosaurs written by David E. Fastovsky and David B. Weishampel is primarily designed as a textbook.Although very readable this text can be used as a resource, the chapters build sequentially reflecting the nature our the science.Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Not a very good book
This book is only for readers like myself, who are so interested in evolution that they are willing to tolerate books which are not that good.Even for me, the authors' tendency tosubstitute repetition for concrete examples was a definite stumbling block.They certainly do not have a lot to add to our understanding of evolution.I would advise people to first read Sean B Carroll's "Endless Forms Most Beautiful", which focuses on the hox genes and the link between embryonic and evolutionary development, and if you have a tolerance for more technical detail, Lynn Helena Caporale's "Darwin in the Genome", a very important effort in tying together all the research on how are DNA facilitates evolution: the structure of DNA makes some types of mutations many times more likely than others. Both of those books have their faults so if you just want to read fascinating science, read the books by Nick Lane.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Self-evolving Organism
To a large degree the question posed by Marc W. Kirschner and John C. Gerhart in "The Plausibility of Life: Solving Darwin's Dilemma" has been the elephant in the room of evolutionary theory.Exactly how does the variation arise that is the target of natural selection?Random mutation does not seem to be a powerful source, as mutations are more often likely to be deleterious.Still something drives the huge variety of life we see on earth- what is it?
4-0 out of 5 stars Not really a popular-level book...
The topic and the contents of this book are very interesting, but it is rather heavy reading. If you are not very familiar with biology and genetics, it will be slow going. This is not really a popular-level book, any more than Stephen Jay Gould's "Ontogeny and Phylogeny" is a popular-level book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not Bad
Although I'm not too fond of evolutionary psychology (EP), simply because at the moment we can easily explain any psychological characteristic either socially, naturally, or both (each with convincing, but not concrete support), Miller's analysis of sexual selection is at times very intriguing. In particular, his explanation of sexual selections contribution to male/female ornamentation is very compelling.
5-0 out of 5 stars It's all about understanding
Only a true scientist could have written a book like this one. Someone who is knowledgeable enough to know the facts, brilliant enough to come up with a sound theory and courageous enough to stand up for it, even though it follows the lines not very popular for the last century.
5-0 out of 5 stars A rare revelation
Even as I was already used to evolutionary thinking, for me this book was a revelation. Without quite changing my way of seeing human beings, it casted a new light on the matter by convincingly considering sexual selection at the heart of evolution. From this point, all the rest seems to ensue naturally, as usually happens to a theory which is grounded on the right hypothesis; then, it seems that by combining sexual and natural selection, almost all features of almost all living creatures can potentially be understood, not least our own behaviors, even (or especially) the seemingly strangest and least logical ones! The genius who founded the theory was really Charles Darwin, and this is made clear in the book, which is really about developing Darwin's theories in a modern and comprehensive way and with a selfish gene emphasis. ...

As a physical anthropology grad student, I am finding this book to be very useful. The hardcover text is great, but this is transportable and packed with information. Would highly recommend it to anyone in forensics, anthropology.

4-0 out of 5 stars The Human Bone Manual
this book would be best accompanied by an anatomy book.To really get a good visual, it's a good idea to review muscle attachments and origin sites in a(n additional) book with color.so My biggest criticism (and it's so easy to criticize) is that while many of the bones are pictured the as the actual size, there are not photographs of the bones articulated with neighboring bones.I found it hard to side bones because of this.So, it's a pretty good book in spite of my harshness, just not by itself.

5-0 out of 5 stars Covers a lot of ground concisely
I read this book within two days, enjoyed every minute, and learned a ton.That's what a writer can do when he organizes his material superbly yet parsimoniously, resisting the temptation to get technical on you or brandish everything he knows about a subject.The book does a wonderful job of laying out (most plausible) hypotheses by drawing on the latest observations and discoveries, several from the last 4-5 years.This is critical because a lot has been learned and revised in recent times.
5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant coverage of contemporary research on human evolution
Carl Zimmer is a rarity: a science writer who thoroughly understands his subject and can interpret complex science in a way that laypeople can readily grasp.
5-0 out of 5 stars A good beginning...
Smithsonian Intimate Guide to Human Origins is what I would call of a beginner's guide to much of the up-to-date information we have on human evolution.Published in 2005 this is one of the best books on human origins.Not just because of the details but because of the beauty of the book itself - tons of full color photos, clear and easy to understand graphs and a lovely dust cover, this book is a must for any collection.I finished the book in a day, not because it was light reading, but because it was a joy to read.From fossils to DNA, from looking at our past to exploring what may be our future, from stone tools to culture.The author really digs into the subject WITHOUT talking down at the reader OR getting trapped in the messy details or complex scientific debates.

4-0 out of 5 stars Strong on Fossil Forms, Weak on Latter-Day Cultures
I have used this book for about three years in my archaeology class, discontinuously I must admit. It's good for those who want a strong biological perspective in humankind's cultural evolution, but it comes up short when it comes to regional civilizations. Treatment of the state-level societies in each region (e.g., Mesopotamia, Egypt, China, Mesoamerica, Andean America) could be more detailed, and the book would be easier to follow if it used a sequence of culture model for each region from its Neolithic to florescence to decline. In treating fossil hominids and their material culture, from the earliest human and humanlike forms through the Lower Paleolithic to the Mesolithic traditions and their makers, however, this is a solid presentation.

4-0 out of 5 stars Putting more than the past into perspective
Kenneth Fader's "The Past In Perspective" is a book designed for those who wish to learn the basics regarding the field of archaelology. Focusing on the cultural evolutions of mankind, Fader never lapses into thejargon so popularly found in some textbooks. This is a book designed tointroduce over five million years of human evolution, so naturally it isbest for those who are new to the topic. Although I used this book for myarcheology class, it contains information that could interest anyone with aflair for history. All in all, it is easy of to follow and does its best torepresent all sides ofarguments that are presented, although at times itseems to stress a war between religous and evolutionary ideas that may, ormay not exist as much as the author would like them to. ...

This is a very good book.I got it for a class and it is very helpful and insightful.

5-0 out of 5 stars Truly an Excellent Book
I will agree and submit: this is an invaluable introduction to the field of bioinformatics. With introductions to everything from sequence analysis to hidden markov models and even a primer on grammars, this is a useful introduction both to biological applications for computer scientists *as well as* computational methods for biologists.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding introduction
... not only to molecular modeling, but to some of the subtleties of DNA and protein behavior and geometry, too.5-0 out of 5 stars A long expected book in molecular modeling is finally here
I highly recommend Professor T. Schlick's book. It is beautifully written with many examples and great illustrations. The book is truly interdisciplinary; it covers, in good depth, both the biological and mathematical aspects of computational structural biology. Most chapters start with an amenable introduction and finish with "hands-on" recommendations and future challenges. I was particularly pleased with the level of detail in each chapter (in particular those that show the reader the advantages and pitfalls of the different methods presented). My colleague Mariel Vazquez and I used this book in the design and preparation of our "Special topics in Mathematics" course at the UC Berkeley Mathematics Department during the Spring of 2003. 5-0 out of 5 stars Beautifully written!
As a person with no expertise in molecular modeling who wanted to learn about this field, this book is right on!I find the author's lively text to be as well-written and clear as any science textbook I have ever read.I especially enjoyed the first two chapters for their historical perspective and their practical illustrations of applications of genetics in the world today.These chapters can be understood by non-scientists, whereas the rest of the book is clearly designed for graduate students in any one of the science disciplines.Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars More like 3 and a half stars
I just finished this book yesterday.I completed it in two days, not necesarily because it was so exciting, but more so because it was written in a very easy to read, conversational tone--and I do mean a conversational tone, not an informal tone.The author frequently and intentionally repeats himself, refers to material that will come later, and interjects personal experiences--it all reminded me of a folksy college professor giving a lecture.Along with this non-scholarly approach, the book includes a glossary, but no foot or endnotes.On the other hand, the reader needs some background in at least popular magazine biology to be able to follow the book.
