“WOW! This deceptively slender book packs a helluva powerful punch….Unnatural Selection is an engaging and eye-opening book that is essential reading for everyone?city dwellers and country folk alike?who lives on planet Earth….Like reading a dystopian novel, this book will capture your imagination and keep you awake into the wee hours. But unlike a dystopian novel, the author actually proposes evolutionarily-sound strategies for what we can do to stop the damage before it becomes lasting.” The Guardian’s GrrlScientist blog

“…a stealth lesson in basic biology, just the book to give to a friend or family member who thinks that evolution has little to do with day-to-day practicalities.” Los Angeles Review of Books

“…disturbing but fascinating…bright, clear, and accessible prose…A concise book with a powerful message.” Booklist
