Book review: ‘Evolution: The Triumph of an Idea: from Darwin to DNA’ by Carl Zimmer

An excellent introduction to evolution.

EvolutionThis introduction to evolution is the companion book to the WGBH/NOVA TV series of the same name. It is very well written, and covers a broad mix of contemporary and historical issues concerning evolution.

If you're looking for a single book to give you a good background on the general subject of evolution, this is probably the book you're looking for.

Zimmer also maintains an excellent weblog, The Loom.
