This important new book by award-winning science writer Cynthia Mills clearly explains one of the most crucial, and misunderstood, concepts of modern science--the theory of evolution. Mills begins by acquainting readers with Enlightenment-era explanations for the origins of life and introduces readers to the early scientists and philosophers who had the greatest influence on Charles Darwin's thinking. She then answers key questions about the theory of evolution, including: How successful is it at explaining the natural world, and what does it fail to explain? What are some of the competing ideas and theories about the origin of the species? How will the theory of evolution likely hold up over time, as our understanding of genetics grows?
