> Could someone please recomend a couple good books on evolution. I need
to give a persuasive speech (Pro evelution) in mid-May and need to do
>Ignoring the obvious volume by a certain C.Darwin I would agree with the
other recommendations already posted. However, as you are looking (I trust)
to write an interesting speech may I additionally recommend some of Stephen
Jay Gould's books. Gould is an evolutionary biologists, palaeontologist and
intelectual par excellence and his books are full of good threory and great
anecdotes! Particularly noteworthy publications are:
- Bully for Brontosaurous (general essays on evolutionary biology).
- Wonderful Life (the story of the Burgess Shales).
- Three Little Piggies (more general essays).
Hope this is of use
