This is a great starting point on understanding evolution. He is quite conservative, but lays a great foundation.

A really through introduction to evolution. Not too technical, and easy to understand. My only criticism is he occasionally leaves some terms undefined. I think he wrote this when he was in his 90s' so we can cut him some slack. Highly recommended
