I Get Books ..

I receive a fair number of books to review each month, so I thought I should do what several magazines and other publications do; list those books that have arrived in my mailbox so you know that this is the pool of books from which I will be reading and reviewing on my blog.

I think you've got the "Why Evolution Works" and "Ideas Behind the Chess Openings" authors the wrong way round.

I've no doubt , though, that "Why Evolution Works" is a fine book.

I have fond memories of reading Ruben Fine's Ideas behind the Chess Openings (in the school chemistry lab, where we used to play chess) back when I was 12 years old. However, it is a bit outdated now and doesn't have all that much to say on biology or evolution unless, that is, you are interested in the evolution of the Ruy Lopez.
