Richard Dawkins is author of The Selfish Gene, voted The Royal Society's Most Inspiring Science Book of All Time, and also the bestsellers The Blind Watchmaker, Climbing Mount Improbable, The Ancestor's Tale, The God Delusion, and two volumes of autobiography, An Appetite for Wonder and Brief Candle in the Dark. He is a Fellow of New College, Oxford and both the Royal Society and the Royal Society of Literature. In 2013, Dawkins was voted the world’s top thinker in Prospect magazine’s poll of 10,000 readers from over 100 countries.
Much more than just a collection of journalism, this has an
overarching unity and presents a panoramic survey of his
intellectual career. There are occasional moments of delicious
savagery as Dawkins dismantles an opponent. Much more often he
celebrates the work of fellow scientists and throughout the entire
460 pages, one can enjoy the unfailing clarity of his thought and
prose, as well as the grandeur of his vision of life on Earth.
