Now, wait a moment. This is not a long, stale examination of the book. I simply want to give you some highlights and tell you why I am recommending it.
Some information about the author, Dr. Jonathan Sarfati, from Amazon:
Dr. Safarti studied science at Victoria University of Wellington. He obtained a B.Sc. in Chemistry with two physics papers substituted (nuclear and condensed matter physics). His Ph.D. in Chemistry was awarded for a thesis entitled "A Spectroscopic Study of some Chalcogenide Ring and Cage Molecules". He has co-authored papers in mainstream scientific journals on high temperature superconductors and selenium-containing ring and cage-shaped molecules. He also had a co-authored paper on high-temperature superconductors published in Nature when he was 22. In 1999, his first book was published, Refuting Evolution, which countered a teachers guidebook by the National Academy of Sciences, Teaching about Evolution and the Nature of Science, which had been widely circulated and publicized. Refuting Evolution now has 450,000 copies in print.More about Dr. Sarfati is here. You can see that he has science qualifications.
As you saw above, Refuting Evolution was originally written in response to the misleading and often dishonest Teaching about Evolution and the Nature of Science.
The overwhelming majority of evolutionists and atheists that I have encountered know nothing about creation science (which does not hider them from expressing uninformed opinions about the subject.) This would be an excellent way to get informed on some of the basics of creation science.
In its 139 pages and ten chapters, Dr. Sarfati packs Refuting Evolution with quite a bit of information. Although written from a biblical creationist standpoint, the book is more about science than it is about theology; his scientific background is evident. It is indexed, with plenty of footnotes and references. This is the fifth edition, published in 2012.
Chapters include information on the age of the Earth, astronomy, human evolution and missing links, genetics, fossils and more. For the creationist, this book is an excellent resource. For the honest seeker of information, it is important. Do not let your biases stand in the way of understanding the facts.
I am looking forward to reading the next one, Refuting Evolution 2.
