This review is from: Your Inner Fish: The amazing discovery of our 375-million-year-old ancestor (Paperback)
I found this book fascinating. It began slowly: but as I read further, each chapter revealed insights into a scientific world that I had been previously unaware of. Although a scientific book, it has been written in a manner that I could follow, and also learn at the same time. Once I got into it, I found myself constantly looking forward to my next chance to read a bit more.
I couldn't help thinking afterwards that this "unravelling" of the mysteries of nature might appeal equally to both atheists and religious alike. Atheists will surely delight at the notion that science is beginning to explain the details of the creation of all organisms including ourselves; while the devout among us can regard the astronomical unlikelihood of our being as proof positive of the hand of the Almighty.
Nonetheless reading this book made me appreciate a bit more how lucky we humans are. So perhaps we shouldn't waste the opportunities that we now have, for the sake of short time gains. We have it would seem, a long history.
