"Coyne's knowledge of evolutionary biology is prodigious, his deployment of it as masterful as his touch is light." -Richard Dawkins
In the current debate about creationism and intelligent design, there is an element of the controversy that is rarely mentioned-the evidence. Yet the proof of evolution by natural selection is vast, varied, and magnificent. In this succinct and accessible summary of the facts supporting the theory of natural selection, Jerry A. Coyne dispels common misunderstandings and fears about evolution and clearly confirms the scientific truth that supports this amazing process of change. Weaving together the many threads of modern work in genetics, paleontology, geology, molecular biology, and anatomy that demonstrate the "indelible stamp" of the processes first proposed by Darwin, Why Evolution Is True does not aim to prove creationism wrong. Rather, by using irrefutable evidence, it sets out to prove evolution right.

This book is a gem!
My thanks to Professor Coyne for writi g this book. It helps me a lot in self teaching evolution. Very easy to understand. A really gem for beginner who doesn't know much about evolution.
Easy to read, very informative
I loved your book!
Seen through the eyes of an informed "evolutionist", all life now seems so much more special knowing the miraculous path ours and all other forms of life travelled to get to where we are today! How rare and special are we all!
The best book of it's kind
If I had to recommend one book to someone that wanted to learn about evolution this would be the one.
