"On Sunday, 12th February, 2001 the code for the entire human genome was finally deciphered. Embedded in the code were large fragments that were directly derived from viruses. These fragments were evidence for the extraordinary role of viruses in the evolution of all life on earth and their vital involvement in a huge range of biological processes. Virolution is the definitive guide to this amazing new field of research that has redefined the science of evolution and disease."--BOOK JACKET.

Terrible. Epigenetics and horizontal gene transfer are important and interesting topics but this book way overstates its case. The subtitle "The most important evolutionary book since Dawkins' Selfish Gene" is just what the author named the book. It is nothing new and the author has not contributed any fresh ideas.
