Excellent overview of evolution
Michael Ghiselin is the highly regarded author of "The Triumph of the Darwinian Method" and has written a very accessible and short history of evolutionary thinking. The reading is excellent and engaging, particularly the passages in which various writers, including Darwin, are quoted.

Darwin: theory or fact?
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
No, because the evidence presented is faulty.
Has Darwin and Evolution turned you off from other books in this genre?
Not at all, I'm intrigued to find the answers to the topic.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
Yes, but this is not as important as the actual theories presented as fact.
Do you think Darwin and Evolution needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Yes, a book to explain all the parts that were left out; an in-depth study of evolution and Darwin's motives for coming up with it.
Any additional comments?
Only that everything should not be accepted blindly as truth. This is not a bedtime story to help you fall asleep, put your thinking cap on.
