Summary

Icons of Evolution Science or Myth? Why Much of What We Teach About Evolution is Wrong. Jonathan Wells. Regnery, Washington, DC, 2000. 352 pp. $27.95. ISBN 0-89526-276-2.

Addressing the non-specialist, Wells argues that because textbooks sometimes present examples of evolution in incorrect or misleading ways, evolution itself is a fiction. His book is currently being favorably cited by proponents of creation science and "intelligent design" theories.
