In this book the authors draw on what is known, largely from recent research, about the nature of genes and cells, the genetics of development and animal and plant body plans, intra- and interorganismal communication, sensation and perception, to propose that a few basic generalizations, along with the modified application of the classical evolutionary theory, can provide a broader theoretical understanding of genes, evolution, and the diverse and complex nature of living organisms.
...the book is indeed recommendable... (The Quarterly Review of Biology, December 2004) "for anyone who wishes to know more about genes and evolution and go beyond the classic, classroom theory--this is the book for you...[will] take you on a ride you won't regret." (Heredity, February 2005) "For anyone who wishes to know more about genes and evolution and go beyond the classic, classroom theory - this is for you..." (Heredity, Vol. 94, 2005) "This book is well written and would probably be mainly of interest to students of evolution who have a more philosophical perspective or to philosophy students interested in evolution." (American Journal of Human Genetics, September 2004) "This book is highly suited to students and scientists in a range of fields who want to understand how evolution works through genetics." (E-STREAMS, August 2004) "This book represents a valiant effort in expanding evolutionary thinking in many biological specialties." (Choice, June 2004, Vol. 41, No. 10)
