Your second book about evolution is the biography of Darwin by Janet Browne. She is a historian of science and edited eight volumes of Darwin’s correspondence, so she knows what she’s talking about. But readers on also said it was a real cliffhanger. This book may be the best scientific biography that I’ve ever read.

    This book provides an introduction to the new field of evolutionary medicine. Evolutionary concepts help explain why we remain vulnerable to disease, how pathogens and cancer cells evolve, and how the diseases that affected our evolutionary ancestors have shaped our biology. This book interweaves the presentation of evolutionary concepts with examples that illustrate how these concepts enhance. This book describes in detail the basic principles of pathogenesis which will help the reader to understand the pathogenesis of any symptom or disease. One can't but appreciate the wisdom of our ancient physicians, when one realises that our understanding of disease process and its evolution has not altered significantly even today, in spite of.

A new book, called The Tangled Tree, explains how evolution isn't exactly as Darwin understood it. About 8 percent of the human genome is made up.

But Darwin did not write a book titled How Existing Species Change Over Time. He wrote a book titled The Origin of Species. In other words, Darwin attempted to explain macroevolution — the origin of new species, organs, and body plans.
