Leave a comment and tell me what you think.
My preliminary comments: I understand that Neil Shubin's book Your Inner Fish: A Journey into the 3.5-Billion-Year History of the Human Body (Vintage) has been wildly popular, and certainly, it is a great introduction to evolution. However, I think that most of the good and unique stuff in the book was expounded in this article. As great as it is, I wouldn't label it "my favorite".
The Making of the Fittest: DNA and the Ultimate Forensic Record of Evolution is a fine book, which gathers together many examples of evolution from genetics, and is overall highly convincing.
The 29 Evidences for Macroevolution is a fine document, although it could potentially be too hard to understand for those who don't know much about evolution. And it's not a book. But it does deserve an honorable mention.
Evolution: What the Fossils Say and Why It Matters is a colorful, well-illustrated, and informative guide to the massive fossil evidence for evolution.
Personally, I'm tempted to name Jerry Coyne's book Why Evolution Is True as the best evolution book. It is a beautiful, excellent explanation of several of the lines of evidence for evolution. Note the keyword there: tempted. My own personal favorite is Richard Dawkins' The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution.
btw, Happy New Year!
