Rose Roberto

Darwin's Ghost is well written, interesting, and educational...in a fun way. The definition of evolution is simply "change through time" and the author uses examples from what biologists know today of genetics, DNA and molecular biology to show how the mechanics of evolution work. The tone of the book is very conversational and explicit without being too technical.
Jairam Maharaj

Simply wonderful...makes simple reading of an intensely complex subject...used it as an intro to my studies of Biogeography...

The inherently absorbing subject matter rescues this book from Jones's maddeningly poor writing style-- awkward transitions, obscure antecedents, inapt adverbs consistently detract from an otherwise compelling read.
