Science investigates how the world works so passionate debate about how it should or could work better can be informed by facts. Is race a factually meaningless and irrelevant concept for education, medicine, or life success in the 21st century? Sarich and Miele think not and their book drives at the issues head on with a provocative and, at times, disturbing presentation that, in the end, offers hope for a better appreciation of human variability.

So much tripe has been published and promulgated by the we are all equal and race is an illusion crowd, that to find a coherent, cogent, and penetrating analysis and rebuttal of the PBS approach is a delicious repast! …Race: The Reality of Human Differences by Vincent Sarich and Frank Miele … will represent an important milestone in reducing the millstone of the myths that have accumulated denigrating and/or ignoring our genetic diversity. This book will certainly be a must for my students, and it is surely long overdue!
— Dr. Ralph L. Holloway, Professor of Anthropology, Columbia University
