    "This book helped me to understand evolution in a new way that I could actually explain naturally. The book is very well written, delving into complex topics while using natural language. I wouldn't call this book a light read due to the nature of the topics, but it is an easier read considering the topic."

    "I wanted to like this book, I really did, but I just thought that this book was too flat for me. I thought that it was too dry and hard to understand. I didn't think it was going to be an easy read, exactly, but this was just too much. It was too wordy and repetitive. I put it down and couldn't pick it back up. "
