This is one of the easiest-to-read, most exciting books on evolution of the past twenty years.
It describes evolution happening before our eyes among the isolated bird populations of the Galapagos - the very finches observed by Darwin on his Beagle voyage - and its heroes are an unsung British couple.
It is uncannily fascinating to imagine the beak of the finch changing in our lifetime in response to evolutionary pressure. . . .
