A clear & convincing explanation of evolution. This book gave me a much clearer understanding of the many lines of evidence for evolution and how evolution works.

If you read this excellent book and you still deny the fact of evolution then you are pretty much hopeless.

This is a great book delivers a Solid account explaining the evolution and its ability to make predictions, its applications and of course solid evidence that's available to us all. I did my undergrads and grads in physics and this book gave me a great knowledge on the subject of evolution by natural selection. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning natural science.

Clearly written. You should read it. The title says it all, the book explains the Why part in a way anybody could enjoy understanding it.

TOP 50 REVIEWERon May 21, 2013
I'm no scientist, and I'm of a background sympathetic to intelligent design. From my point of view, Coyne's book is the most convincing and best written option for proving the case for evolution. He effectively starts from the best evidence, creating a firm foundational case before moving to areas where there are more questions, or in the case of human evolution, where the greatest controversy lies.

Coyne dismisses creationist arguments, but he avoids belittling religious beliefs or the values that might cause people to resist the case for evolution. Therefore, this is a book to give a creationist interested in seeing the best opposing arguments (better than Dawkins' "Greatest Show on Earth"), or to someone who is wavering on the edge, just needing a little more convincing. Obviously a dyed-in-the-wool creationist won't read it.

The story that's outlined here is truly astonishing and awe-inspiring, and hardly diminishes anyone's avenues for exploration. Some people think this is a non-magical explanation of origins, but to my way of thinking, natural selection is magic, considering its power to shape and create species, at least as outlined here. Just because you can invoke "natural selection" doesn't mean that you understand what it is. Anymore than invoking "God" increases understanding.

Anyway, a wonderful book that will give me much to think about in the future. At least I know what evolution really teaches, as opposed to some caricatured variation alleged by a dishonest creationist.

Amazing, Coyne sums up all of the arguments so cleanly and with as little jargon as possible. Examples are given and the case is made. If you love evolutionary biology (like i do) or are a creationist or non-science person willing to see the incredible amount of irrefutable backing evolution has, this IS the book to read. And its concise, which is good.
