Media reviews

"Good textbooks shape a field. They present up-to-date information in such a well-organized way that gaps in our knowledge become glaringly apparent. Alert students who read such books are driven to ask how these gaps might be filled in, and sometimes to ask even more fundamental questions about the field. The late Albert Lehninger's Biochemistry was such a text, as were James Watson's Molecular Biology of the Gene and EO Wilson's Sociobiology. I expect that Mark Ridley's new book on evolution will join their distinguished company"
- Nature

"This is one of the best and certainly the most complete and up-to-date evolutionary textbooks in the market. This book has undergone extensive and welcome upgrading in the successive editions, since I have seen the earlier editions. Though it is comprehensive, it is easily followable by the students. The author is well known in the field and that is a big plus point. The pedagogical aids are very good, with chapter opening outlines, summaries and questions, etc. The colour plates are very good, and the associated website is also quite useful. Hence, we are taking this valuable book as additional required reading."
- V. Lakshminarayanan

" [...] this book certainly provides a good solid and up-to-date foundation to the subject of Evolution and one that I think students will find easy to use."
- Nick Colegrave, University of Edinburgh, in Genetic Research, May 2004
