Bruce D. Olsen is a brilliant educator and author of this text. Olsen helps students become critically engaged with the fundamentals of introductory biology through the lens of evolutionary theory. The old Dobzhansky adage "Nothing in Biology Makes Sense Except in the Light of Evolution's" truth is manifested in this text through focusing less on jargon and traditional subject-by-subject lessons and more on the critical use of theory to unearth the greater meaning of biology. Students or curious readers will walk away by being able to not only apply evolutionary theory to their daily lives, but to also realize why it is important in understanding man and our place in the universe.
