My recent favorites are, "Why Evolution is True", by Jerry Coyne, which is extremely readable and beautifully composed; and, "Your Inner Fish" by Neil Shubin, which looks at the embryonologic evolution of humans. I hope people will read Coyne and Shubin. I also just got "Evolution---the first 4 billion years" eds., Michael Ruse and Joseph Travis. It is very well done and is a great reference, covering a wide range of subtopics.

Hi Eli,
Yes, I have heard that the book by Prothero was great...and since I am really into fossils & paleontology, I am going to have to add that to my library, as well. Thanks for the note. And, Danelle---let me know what you think of "The Greatest Show on Earth" after you get a chance to peruse it.

I'm hoping my "The Greatest Show on Earth" arrives in the mail today!

I'm currently reading "Evolution: What the Fossils Say and Why It Matters" by Donald Prothero, it is outstanding. It is limited in scope to fossil evidence but because of that provides much more depth, it also has a great overview of the history of creationism, it's methods, models and tactics.

Hi Matheus,
I'll have to see if I can pick that up....I have other works by Dawkins, but not that one. Thanks! Cheri
