really enjoyed the humor, drawings but would have enjoyed more about humans am definety going to read more Glenn Murphy.
This book minimizes the early history of science, as if real science began a couple hundred years ago. Linnaeus is ignored. Assumptions are stated as facts without any guidelines about how such conclusions are reached. There are creative exercises which emphasize the relatedness of all living things. I am 81 years old, a biology major in college who reads and tries to keep up with science and DNA developments, also a great-gramma and former teacher.
I loved the book and if you are interested in the topic it will give you a good overall view. Then you can add more books about evolution in your library. An easy read and very enjoyable
