What more do you need?
Surely this man should be given aknighthood for services to science, evidence and reason. The evidence in this book is astonishing and at the same time so simple to understand. Again there are some stunningly ignorant people who deny evidence and rational thinking, so please ignore the absurd one star review from k lowry who obviously thinks we were magically zapped onto earth. Top stuff from Sir richard!
Highly Highly Recommended
I am absolutely thrilled to give this book 5 stars. I am unashamedly an evolutionist and have been for several years even before becoming an atheist. Coming from a creationist background, even when reading books on evolution I could almost hear the nagging voices in the back of my mind, "But how is this possible?", "Creatures on this planet are too complicated to have simply arisen" etc etc. No matter how much I personally accepted the fact of evolution and strove to understand it, I could not shake the nagging doubts.
Now finally I understand where those nagging thoughts were stemming from - "essentialism" - an entirely false construct when viewing evolution and certainly either an original or assimilated part of the christian meme. Now excised (or at the very least identified) and the nagging doubts simply disappeared.
Moving on from the slightly philosophical - the book is unparalleled in the simplicity of its explanation and extrapolation of evolution. I have read many books on the subject in attempt to understand the scope and progress of evolution but often found myself getting lost in the science. I am not a scientist and find detailed explanations of biology hard to follow - yet here, without oversimplifying the detail, it is very clear that Professor Dawkins has taken great pains to clearly explain complicated concepts in layman's terms. At one stage he even warns the reader of a complex part of the book and suggests it not be read late at night when the reader is tired! I really appreciated the conversational tone which suits this particular book.
I was already an evolutionist before I picked up this book but after putting it down many more pieces of the puzzle are in place and I am so much the better for having read it.
Worth far more than the measly 10 they are charging - get it, read it! You won't be sorry.
