Review: Evolutionary AnalysisUser Review - Goodreads
Beautiful comprehensive study of evolution. Clear, easy-to-read text, with plenty of charts, diagrams, pictures, etc. I didn't major in biology, and it had been at least ten years since I'd sat through a science course, but I found this textbook extremely understandable. Read full review
