Publisher Description

"Coyne's knowledge of evolutionary biology is prodigious, his deployment of it as masterful as his touch is light." -Richard Dawkins

In the current debate about creationism and intelligent design, there is an element of the controversy that is rarely mentioned-the evidence. Yet the proof of evolution by natural selection is vast, varied, and magnificent. In this succinct and accessible summary of the facts supporting the theory of natural selection, Jerry A. Coyne dispels common misunderstandings and fears about evolution and clearly confirms the scientific truth that supports this amazing process of change. Weaving together the many threads of modern work in genetics, paleontology, geology, molecular biology, and anatomy that demonstrate the "indelible stamp" of the processes first proposed by Darwin, Why Evolution Is True does not aim to prove creationism wrong. Rather, by using irrefutable evidence, it sets out to prove evolution right.

uh haha

This was such an awesome book. I've read a couple of books on evolution, but this is the first that actually made me interested in fossils. Very cool. Of course it wouldn't convince a dummy that evolution is true because you actually have to have some reading comprehension and be able to understand what you read, but for anyone with a brain that doesn't believe in evolution, this book will remove all doubt and if it doesn't, you aren't understanding it.

Masterpiece

A spectacularly accessible book, artfully crafted, and keenly suitable to both the scientist and layman alike.

When you have a Richard Dawkins quote in the synopsis, you know it’s gonna be bad.

Whether you’re religious or not, everyone knows that the theory of evolution is in fact a theory and has still yet to be proven. The title is misleading, he never gives any concrete facts nor does he mention the hundreds of “evolutionary” frauds that are to this day propagated in scientific textbooks.
