Product description

Review

Marshall writes in a practical style so that all of his readers can come to understand evolution and can make a thoughtful conclusion on a controversial topic. Recommended for . . . students of biology, history of science, and religious studies, as well as researchers and scholars.
--Library Journal

Standing on the knife-edge between traditional evolutionary theory and Intelligent Design, this book will inflame both dogmatic Darwinists and Creationists. It's irritating to both because it's friendly to the idea of evolution itself, and because it judges Darwinism too close-minded and reductive. . . . While most scientists submit to self-censorship and dare not question cherished assumptions, the boldest scientists like Albert Einstein, Francis Crick and Stephen Hawking never feared such taboos. Whether agnostics, atheists or believers, they never shrank back from big questions or unconventional solutions. Evolution and design are not either-or, but both-and.
--Jean-Claude Perez, author, Codex Biogenesis and retired IBM Biomathematics and Artificial Intelligence Interdisciplinary Researcher

Marshall is making an invaluable contribution toward more open and honest discussion on the subject of evolution versus creation. The book is well written, often witty, and is extremely thought provoking. . . . It is amazing that this 'non-biologist' has analyzed life phenomena at the cellular and molecular levels to such depth and width by applying information gained by cutting-edge methods in the life sciences!
--Dr. Kwang Jeon, Editor, International Review of Cell and Molecular Biology, and Professor Emeritus, Department of Biochemistry, University of Tennessee

Any person of faith who cares about how creation reveals God--and how evolution is actually a devastating arsenal of evidence against atheism--should add Evolution 2.0 to the extreme tippy-top of their reading list. Evolution 2.0 is equally shocking to both atheists and Christians, a genuine eye-opener in a category of its own.
--D. Bnonn Tenant, ThinkingMatters.org.nz

A very readable book and a devastating attack on the neo-Darwinist orthodoxy that evolution is nothing but natural selection acting on random variation.
--Peter Saunders, co-director, Institute of Science in Society, and Emeritus professor of Applied Mathematics, King's College, London

With considerable wit and amazing insight, Marshall delivers a compelling and forceful synthesis that sets a new standard for discussions about the relationship between science and faith. The result is no less than astonishing.
--Mark McMenamin, Professor of Geology, Mount Holyoke College

The book is wonderfully thought-provoking, as Perry brings a fresh perspective to the increasingly arid (and acrimonious) debate between Intelligent Design and methodological naturalism.
--Crofton Brierley, MS Biochemistry, Oxford University, former department head, Marconi Optical

A remarkable and useful resume of the state-of-the-art of this great problem of science.
--Stuart Pivar, author, Lifecode and On The Origin of Form, and cofounder, New York Academy of Art

I am committed to Young Earth Creationism, and thus cannot agree with some of Perry's conclusions. However, I highly recommend this book to any skeptic who is committed to a purely materialistic paradigm. The science presented here - from the latest research to the most engaging minds on this subject--make this the one book you should read.
--Ray Glinski, MS in Biochemistry, Pastor at Grace Church of DuPage

Evolution 2.0 is a modern philosophical marvel unlike anything I have read in my years of study. It allowed me to put down my guard. The author was not compelling me to believe in an ideology, but rather taking me alongside his journey of self-discovery. I came into this book hesitant. As a staunch creationist I found myself trying to fight with Marshall early on, but his arguments and presentation were flawless and compelling. It was refreshing to see someone examine both sides honestly.
--Marie Sarantakis, Comparative Religion Scholar, Carthage College

Armed with computer science and electrical engineering, Perry fights an uphill battle to unite the space between those who believe evolution is random and those who believe species are designed by God, who in some cases deny evolution itself. . . . Judge this book by the science within its pages--and enjoy the story.
--Andras Pellionisz, Biophysicist, Founder of Fractogene; PhD, Computer Technology, PhD, Biology, PhD, Physics

Sometimes the only way a puzzle gets solved is when someone looks at it with fresh eyes. Perry Marshall is an engineer who started to investigate biology. His book could signal a paradigm shift in the battle between Darwinian evolution and creation/ID. Maybe the war is over. Respond, criticize and debate it . . . just don't dismiss it.
--Justin Brierley, host, Unbelievable? radio program and podcast

Evolution 2.0 is clearly the best book I have read on the topic. It helped me far better understand the fallacy of random mutations and how they are really introduced. This is something I was never taught in genetics in undergrad or medical school.
--Joseph Mercola, M.D., New York Times bestselling author of The No-Grain Diet and Effortless Healing

Evolution 2.0 is engaging, thought-provoking, and challenges us to 'reboot' the riddle of evolutionary biology. By re-examining Darwin, Marshall asks us to reconsider the most important question we face: What is Life?

--John S. Torday, MSc, PhD, Evolutionary Medicine Program, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California-Los Angeles

About the Author

Perry Marshall is an author, speaker, engineer, and world-renowned business consultant in Chicago. With a decade of research, he brings a fresh perspective to the 150-year-old evolution debate. Bill Gates of Microsoft and the founders of Google revolutionized software and the Internet through their status as outsiders. Similarly, this book harnesses a communication engineer's outsider's perspective to reveal a century of unrecognized research and discoveries. Evolution 2.0 resolves the conflict between Darwin and Design, opening new avenues of science research and raising tantalizing new questions.

Perry's work in digital communications, control systems, acoustics, and e-commerce bring practical insight to questions about nature and science. His books include
80/20 Sales and Marketing, Ultimate Guide to GoogleAdWords, and Industrial Ethernet. He has a degree in Electrical Engineering. He's consulted in over 300 industries, from computer hardware and software to health care and finance.

Perry Marshall is one of the most expensive business strategists in the world. He is endorsed in FORBES and INC Magazine.

At London's Royal Society, he announced the world's largest science research challenge, the $10 million Evolution 2.0 Prize, staffed by judges from Harvard, Oxford and MIT. He is a published scientist and aims to solve the #1 mystery in Artificial Intelligence and life itself.

His reinvention of the Pareto Principle is published in Harvard Business Review. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Labs uses his 80/20 Curve as a productivity tool.

His Google book laid the foundations for the $100 billion Pay Per Click industry. Marketing legend Dan Kennedy says, “If you don’t know who Perry Marshall is — unforgivable. Perry’s an honest man in a field rife with charlatans.”

He has a degree in Electrical Engineering and lives with his family in Chicago.
