Review

If you want a direct response to creationism, then Jerry Coyne's recent book 'Why Evolution is True' is your book. (Clive Cookson, Financial Times)

Powerful and popular book. (Randy Olson, New Scientist)

'Why Evolution Is True' suceeds in being fully accessible to any reader who has even a vague idea of what DNA is.' (Douglas J. Futuyma, Trends in Ecology and Evolution, Vol.24, No. 7)

It is a book that needed to be written and needs to be read. (Douglas J. Futuyma, Trends in Ecology and Evolution, Vol. 24, No. 7)

One of the very best and most important book on evolution for broad audiences in at least 50 years. (Douglas J. Futuyma, Trends in Ecology and Evolution)

A scholarly, yet delightfully readable account. (Tom Tregenza, Current Biology, Volume 19)

We must present the evidence, and Jerry Coyne's book does an excellent job of it. (Massimo Pigliucci, Science)

Evolution is true...Coyne displays it for us in a way that no objective reader could fail to find compelling. (Richard Dawkins, TLS)

'Why Evolution is True' is outstandingly good. (Richard Dawkins, TLS)

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

Review

I once wrote that anybody who didn't believe in evolution must be stupid, insane or ignorant, and I was then careful to add that ignorance is no crime. I should now update my statement. Anybody who doesn't believe in evolution is stupid, insane, or hasn't read Jerry Coyne. I defy any reasonable person to read this marvellous book and still take seriously the 'breathtaking inanity' that is intelligent design 'theory' or its country cousin, young earth creationism.
