5.0 out of 5 stars A 'classic' must read - whatever your views on Evolution ..., 24 Feb 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Evolution: A Theory in Crisis (Paperback)
Having had a long standing interest in Evolution and having read a number of books on the subject (on both sides of the argument) I was very curious about this book as it has been cited in so many of the other titles. I was hoping it would be a bit of a ‘classic’ and as far as I am concerned this is the case. Regardless of your opinions, you can learn a lot about evolution (and science in general) just by reading and understanding Denton’s arguments. I have believed for a while to have a valid opinion on a subject it’s vital to understand both sides of a argument. This book does a brilliant job of explaining the case against evolution in a balanced, fair, honest and purely scientific way. Regardless, of whether you accept Denton’s arguments it’s important to understand them in order to be balanced and fair-minded. It is indeed a little out of date in a few areas where new discoveries have been made. Nonetheless, all the main points are still valid and it’s still well worth reading for anyone with a basic understanding of science. It certainly exposes a fair number of common myth’s and makes watching TV programmes on the subject far more interesting. Even though it did not teach me much I didn’t already know I would still recommend the book as a good introduction or reference book on the subject.
