Finished The Ancestor's Tale [5/26/2008]

Brilliant from start to finish. The Ancestor's Tale impresses upon the reader the full richness of the tree of life. This is truly an epic book covering all the intricacies of evolution in the clearest, simplest terms. Dawkins has written the best explanation I have read anywhere for mitochondrial eve, and I have read quite a few back in my human origins courses. Everyone with an interest in biology should read this.
