"By combining recent advances in the physical sciences with some of the novel ideas, techniques, and data of modern biology, this book attempts to achieve a new and different kind of evolutionary synthesis. I found it to be challenging, fascinating, infuriating, and provocative, but certainly not dull."--James H, Brown, University of New Mexico"This book is unquestionably mandatory reading not only for every living biologist but for generations of biologists to come."--Jack P. Hailman, "Animal Behaviour," review of the first edition
"An important contribution to modern evolutionary thinking. It fortifies the place of Evolutionary Theory among the other well-established natural laws."--R.Gessink, "TAXON" Ill.
