In 1859, Darwin shocked the world with his theory of evolution by natural selection. Today, his theory still challenges some of our most precious beliefs. This step-by-step guide to ‘Darwin’s idea’ takes a fresh look at the concepts of natural selection and the selfish gene. Drawing on findings from genetics, ecology and animal behavior -- as well as the work of science writers such as Richard Dawkins and Steven Pinker -- the book reveals how the evidence in favor of evolutionary theory is stronger than ever. Did life first evolve on other planets? What’s the advantage of having sex? Why do your parents look after you? And what good to a bird is half a wing? “This is the ideal guide to the most important idea ever to appear in the history of science.” Illustrations.
