The Tangled Bank just got a great review in CBE-Life Sciences Education, a journal from the American Society for Cell Biology about teaching science. Scientific journals roll out their reviews a lot more slowly than newspapers and magazines, but in this case, it was worth the wait. Randy Moore, a University of Minnesota biologist who has done great work in defense of the teaching of evolution, leaves me trying to decide which line I want to drop, blurb-like, onto my web site…
“The best textbook I’ve seen for a nonmajors introductory biology course about evolution.”
“The Tangled Bank is well-produced, up-to-date, readable, and exceptionally well illustrated. At no point does it falter.”
or maybe the last line of the review…
“Read The Tangled Bank. You won’t be disappointed.”
Thanks for the embarrassment of [blurb] riches.
