Is this book any good? I had not heard of it yet.
Haven’t heard of the book or the author till you mentioned him.
I just found this:
That books is actually on my Kindle. Or, more accurately, on the PC Kindle on my laptop.
I seem to recall that the author signed into evcforum and mentioned his book there.
I have not looked closely at if for a while. As best I recall, it seemed reasonable but nothing to get excited about. Most people at PS would not have a problem with it – except for the YECs and the ID proponents.
Is it a scientifically sound primer though? Is it correct and in depth?
I did not notice any serious scientific problems.
I would not use “in depth”. It is mainly oriented to creationists (YEC and ID), trying to persuade them that their criticism of evolution is mistaken.
