The million copy bestsellerUniversally acclaimed and translated into over twenty languages'the sort of popular science writing that makes the reader feel like a genius'New York Times'This important book could hardly be more exciting.'The Economist'Learned, witty, and very well written . . . exhilaratingly good'Spectator'the reader will come away with a clear understanding of kin selection, evolutionary stable strategies, and evolutionary theories of animal behaviour. This is a considerable achievement'THES'The exciting theories and their wide implications are explained with clarity, wit and enthusiasm'Peter Parker, Sunday Times'This book should be read, can be read, by almost everyone. It describes with great skill a new face of the theory of evolution.'W. D. Hamilton, Science'The presentations are remarkable for their clarity and simplicity, intelligible to any schoolchild, yet so little condescending as to be a pleasure to the professional.'American Scientist

Richard Dawkins writes about such topics as DNA and genetic engineering, virtual reality, astronomy, and evolution. Dawkins was educated at Oxford University and taught zoology at the University of California and Oxford University, holding the position of the Charles Simonyi Professor of the Public Understanding of Science. He is a member of the International Academy of Humanism. Dawkins' books include The Selfish Gene, The Extended Phenotype, The Blind Watchmaker, River Out of Eden, and Climbing Mount Improbable. His book, entitled The God Delusion, shows how religion fuels war, foments bigotry, and abuses children. Dawkins supports his points with historical and contemporary evidence. His title An Appetitie for Wonder: The Making of a Scientist made The New York Times Best Seller List for 2013.
