Top Ten Myths About Evolution

Razib of Gene Expression links to an interesting-looking book out from Promethius Books, The Top Ten Myths About Evolution.

I am often (no pun intended) skeptical of the stuff that Promethius puts out. Their aim of providing critical thinking works for the general public is laudable, but their tendency towards a Skeptics Society point of view as to what critical thinking is often leads them down wrong or overly narrow paths.

However, the selections that are on the site all seem solid and measured. And there's a cute (though distant) relative of ours on the cover. It looks like it's certainly worth a look. I'll have to see about laying my hands on a copy.
