Magisterial. 'The Science of Life' is still well worth reading eighty years after it was published. Book Four (The How and Why of Development and Evolution) has been callled "perhaps the clearest, most readable, succinct and informative popular account of the subject ever penned. It was here that [Julian Huxley] first expounded his own version of what later developed into the evolutionary synthesis," a term that Julian Huxley coined, and which is still the current paradigm in evolutionary biology.
