Richard, or whoever is on deck,
Instinctively I knew that reading The Ancestor’s Tale would be worth the amount of concentration it required from laymen. How could a 600 page textbook keep drawing me in with ever-increasing interest?
It is worth the effort just to get to the last few chapters which really turn out to be the major point of interest. I have never had any doubt that evolution was the path and deity can please themselves, but now I see the amazing inevitability of it all.
Many thanks from a humble bipedal hairless camera-eyed ape.
