Book Get

At the advice of Larry Moran, I've picked up a copy of Stephen Jay Gould's The Structure of Evolutionary Theory. It arrived in the mail the other day, and since it didn't have a dust jacket (I bought it slightly used), I covered it in an old grocery bag, just like we used to do in grade school:



Man, brown bag dust jackets are awesome. You can draw on them! Why don't I do this for all my books?!

For all the exposure to evolution I've had through my biology classes and elsewhere, I've been lacking a solid, dedicated study of the subject for its own sake at the kind of level offered by Structure. I'm hoping it will be a good launch point, if nothing else.

But enough talk... I'ma do some reading before bed!
