There is an enthusiastic review by Axel Meyer in this week's  (04 October) 
Nature of:  

"From DNA to Diversity: Molecular Genetics and the Evolution of Animal 
Design" by Sean B. Carroll, Jennifer K. Grenier & Scott D. Weatherbee 
[Blackwell: 2001. 214 pp. £29.95, $44.95]

"... it is a joy to read. Using striking examples, the authors brilliantly 
summarize the current state of thinking on the interconnectedness between 
developmental genetics and evolutionary diversification."
