MEDIA REVIEWS
"The book is a compelling and well rounded work. The authors have succeeded in creating a resource that clearly presents the scientific evidence supporting evolution using recognisable arguments and motifs as well as more unusual examples drawn from findings of both historic and contemporary research. Arguing for Evolution is a comprehensive and extremely accessible book which is highly recommended for public, school, and academic libraries, especially those linked to biology or evolutionary science." - Reference Reviews
"This is an excellent and much-needed addition to the resources available on the empirical validity and richness of evolutionary evidence and evolutionary theory." - The Quarterly Review of Biology
"This work is an interesting exploration into the nature of scientific inquiry, using evolution as a model. . . . They have done an admirable job of selecting material from the past and integrating it with current techniques." - Choice
"Presenting the overwhelming evidence for evolution in the natural world, this title makes a step-by-step case for evolution. . . . This title is appropriate for a high-school or college science class or a general adult reader. It could be a circulating book, a reference book, or even a textbook for students of evolution." - Booklist
