Massimo Pigliucci has reviewed WEIT in the latest issue of Science, a review you can find here. It’s a thoughtful, fair and–I’m glad to say–a positive review. But that issue of Science is also devoted to speciation, my own area of interest, and contains half a dozen good articles on the origin of species, both overviews and research articles. If you’re an evolutionary biologist, you’ll want to peruse this issue.
Massimo’s review also singles out for special praise one of the illustrations (the human, chimp, and A. afarensis given below) produced by the intrepid artist responsible for the book’s illustrations: Kalliopi Monoyios, whom I’d recommend to anyone needing a good scientific illustrator. Her webpage is here.
Human, Australopithecus, and chimpanzee.
