I bought this book because I have tickets to see Steve Jones at Words on Water in March. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, felt that I learned a lot, and would recommend it highly.

Read this if you are interested as to how genetics has influenced everything, from our need for a deity to what we can eat to our likelihood to commit crime. Marvelous

The only criticism is that he's a bit soft on fundamentalist morons. You need to give those cretins both barrels so they can get past the 14th Century

I have read all of Steve Jones books listed in this volume and find this one does not achieve its sub-title.
People do not read the bible for a scientific explanation of creation and evolution or even of good and evil. Science and theology don't mix and God has been expelled from the material universe so that it is undetectable by scientific methods. I was sad to find this book was not confined to science. I would have liked to have been informed of the latest explanations of observable facts. I for one would have loved to read about the genetics of Steve Jones's snails!

The supporting text of this book makes reference to Biblical inferences and comment. These connections are minimal, and you have to read a large portion of the tome before the slightest connection between evolution and the Bible occur. A real disappointment, even at the significantly even at the significantly reduced Amazon price at launch.

If you have fixed religious views you will not like, and probably not read this book. If you think that science and all the benefits it has brought and needs to deliver for humanity to have future at all is essential; your views will be supported and reinforced by this book. A tour de force... A real page turner as well...

The book is good. The only thing I find tiring is a pretty much literal interpretation of the Bible, an approach absent in the main Christian churches in Britain. It means that either the author argues against a small minority or his knowledge of the Scripture is limited.

I thought the book was a scientific refutation of biblical stories but it seems more an attempt to scientifically back up the bible. May be I was wrong.
