Description
"In 1976 Richard Dawkins' The Selfish Gene caused a seismic shift in our understanding of biology by proffering the gene-centered view of evolution and was called 'The best work of popular science ever written" by the New York Review of Books. Then in 2006, Dawkins wrote The God Delusion, transforming the world's cultural and intellectual landscape once again with this takedown of religious faith. In this carefully curated collection of forty-two pieces of his shorter work, Dawkins focuses on what science is and how it is done, the inexhaustible wonders of nature, the importance of critical thinking, and the great minds who have changed his life--including Charles Darwin, Carl Sagan, and Christopher Hitchens. The clarity of thought, felicity of expression, serious engagement and sober confidence in rationality that have made so many of his books bestsellers are on full display in these essays, showing Dawkins, again, to be an ingenious maker of connections and the fearless assassin of sacred cows"--,Provided by publisher.
