About the Book:

"Spectacularly successful" — The Quarterly Review of Biology

When it was first published in 2009, The Tangled Bank was the first textbook every written specfically for non-majors college students and became widely adopted in colleges across the United States and other countries. For the second edition, Zimmer has thoroughly updated the book, incorporating cutting-edge research from across biology and developing more effective ways to explain the key concepts of evolution. With vivid portrait of scientists and their research, he demonstrates how vital evolution is to all branches of modern biology—from the fight against deadly antibiotic-resistant bacteria to the analysis of the human genome. Richly illustrated with over 300 illustrations and photographs, The Tangled Bank is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the history of life on Earth.

If you teach an evolution class and would like a desk copy of The Tangled Bank, please send an email to bwr@roberts-publishers.comThe Tangled Bank is now accompanied by a 240-page study guide by Dr. Alison Perkins of the University of Montana.
