The main topic of the coalescent theory is difficult to grasp in the lack of the mathematical descriptions. Although this book is well written overall, however, I am a bit disappointed that there are many erratums such as symbols of viability v is mixed up with w, the usage of subscripts of the allele frequencies are not consistent, and some coefficients in the table. The mathematical description and the contents are not well balanced. I would like to see the revised version in the near future.

HASH(0x9235e27c) out of 5 stars Nothing special 3 Nov. 2014
By Polychaos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is all right. There are a number of errors (we were given extra credit in my class for finding them), at least 2-4 per chapter. They also have adopted some slightly confusing notation by departing from the standard Hardy-Weinberg p^2 + 2pq + q^2 = 1 notation, instead opting for F(sub)A, which just results in wordier (albeit fancier looking) equations.

Chapter order is also quite strange. Selection is not presented until halfway through the book. I learned more by reading "A primer of population biology" by Wilson and Bossert, that book was written in the '70s!
