Excellant book!!

I recommend this book to anyone who needs to fill in the gaps in their own minds about their doubts about evolution. Jerry Coyne does an outstanding job systematically going through the evidence and data revealing why evolution is true. It is an honest appraisal of evolution addressing even the intelligent design crowd without the "in your face" approach. For any honest person who really wants to confront the issue (believers and non-believers alike) in an erudite fashion, this book is a must read. One is left wondering why these facts are not being revealed in the national discourse. Suffice it to say, if anyone you know is left in doubt about the fact of evolution, this book will arm you to the teeth with facts. Read it, it is good.

Great book
