    The ideas outlined in this book can easily get a 5 star rating My understanding of evolution after reading it is entirely different from what it was before doing so Gould shattered some old concepts and replaced them with powerful and concrete ideas that helped me appreciate life evenso especially after knowing how improbable our own existence is There is indeed grandeur in this view of life.I deducted one star because of the part about baseball, which was too painful to read for a The ideas outlined in this book can easily get a 5 star rating My understanding of evolution after reading it is entirely different from what it was before doing so Gould shattered some old concepts and r...

    If you think, like a lot of people do, that evolution is a progressive process that moves towards complexity whatever that means , and, even worse, if you re a member of a solipsistic species called Homo sapiens who think that they re the goal and the pinnacle of evolution, you need to read this book Gould shows that progress is not only NOT the goal of evolution it s not even a general trend The book may also help you with answering another one of the dumb questions asked by the creationist If you think, like a lot of people do, that evolution is a progressive process that moves towards complexity whatever that means , and, even worse, if you re a membe...

    How do I say this properly Gould is brilliant, and a wonderful writer for starters I also don t think his approach was wrong with this one I thought the idea of hitting it out with statistics was a good one But please too much baseball If I buy a book referenced under science I want to readscience I think he either should have lengthened the book to compensate on the science end of it or shortened the baseball reference considerably I mean really how many pages were really necessary How do I say this properly Gould is brilliant, and a wonderful writer for starters I also don t think his approach was wrong with this one I thought the idea of hitting it out with statistics was a good one But please too much baseball If I buy a book referenced under science I want to readscience I think he either should have lengthened the book to compensate on the science ...

    this book, Gould appeals to us to consider the full range of complexity in systems, rather than concentrating on the outliers His overall point is that while human beings may be particularly complex life forms, that doesn t in itself make us the destined end point of evolution, which will quite naturally increase the number ofcomplex organisms because all in all they are not as likely to become less complex.He bolsters this argument with a rather this book, Gould appeals to us to consider the full range of complexity in ...

    A good book with a lot of valuable information I think that Gould goes on far longer than necessary to make his point, but it s understandable since it goes against traditional thinking, and I imagine he s had to fight quite a bit to promote this concept at all.

    Stephen Jay Gould is a skeptic s skeptic Most of his longer form books as opposed to his wonderful essay collections deal with some long held belief in scientific or societal thinking, and then using sometimes tedious statistical analysis to show how said belief is wrong What s not to love about a man who made a hobby out of trying to break various paradigms of thought Sure, he can get a little bit repetitive as he states and restates his thesis and gives detailed re accounts of points he ma Stephen Jay Gould is a skeptic s skeptic Most of his longer form books as opposed to his wonderful essay collections deal with some long held belief in scientific or societal thinking, and then using sometimes tedious statistical analysis to show how said belief is wrong What s not to love about a man who made a hobby out of trying to break various paradigms of thought Sure, he can get a little bit repetitive as he states and restates his thesis and gives detailed re accounts of points he made just a few pages or chapters ago And when I used the word tedious , I absolutely meant it The lengths to which Gould goes to prove his hypotheses are quite entertaining in their own rights And yes, the subject matter itself may seem a bit dry How exciting can a book about the contrast between opposing ideas concerning the presence or absence of ...
