Summary: Charles Darwin's Origin of Species was beautifully written, staunchly defended, and defiantly radical. Yet it emerged long before paleontologists and geologists worked out the chronology of life on Earth, and long before biologists uncovered the molecules that underlie heredity and natural selection.

Carl Zimmer's Evolution presents a rich and up-to-date view of evolution that explores the far-reaching implications of Darwin's theory and emphasizes its pow
