Science writer Brian Clegg, author of Introducing Infinity (2012) in the same series, states that, "book works well as an introduction to the subject," and is, "a solid addition to the series though not an outstanding one." "The text flows nicely," and, Clegg continues, "isn't limited to the pure consideration of evolution by natural selection." "The images," which Clegg contends, "are always important in one of these books", "work well." Clegg concludes that this volume is superior to the earlier Darwin for Beginners, in the same series, as it, "covers the science better," and, "makes better use of the illustrated 'Introducing' format."
