This is the index page of the rough outline of a book, "Problems of Evolution" I am writing. I had planned to have the first draft of the book completed by end 2006. But I have decided to take a ~1-year detour to classify my ~10,000 online quotes into topic order, and issue them as an ebook, nominally called "Evolution Quotes Book".
