Excellent short introduction. Objective, brief, and to the point while treating the subject matter sensitively. Highly recommended for anyone wanting a first introduction to evolutionary theory.

This book is the best place to start to get a handle on evolutionary theory. It is a collection of six short essays that end up being an excellent introduction to anyone wondering what all the fuss is about. Spoiler alert: You're not a monkey.
