An enjoyable and often funny look at Biology
This is a thoroughly entertaining look at biology through the lens of culture, literature and politics. At points it is a diatribe against the right, but then conservatism has allied itself against science for the last 20 to 30 years, so this backlash is to be expected. I only wish it was a bit less opinion and more fact. I also wish, and this is a great compliment, that is was longer. I would really recommend this to anyone who feels that a defense of science and reason is needed in this polarized world of believer vs non-believer and liberal vs conservative. Barash pulls no punches in his arguments against the Bush administration's war on reason, and criticizes Tom Delay and Potter Stewart alike all while through the lens of biology and Darwin's foundations on natural selection. It is interesting to read just how he does this, but more interesting to go along for the (diatribe) ride.

Natural Selections - A nice surprise
When I selected it, I was hoping it wouldn't be another one I'd have to force my way through. It was great and really good info. If you have researched this far, then go for it.
