A somewhat confusing analysis of the selfish gene hypothesis. The author tries to separate the pure hypothesis from the implications coming out of Dawkins' remarks and style of writing, but he's not really successful, or critical. I don't recommend it.

Knjiga daje dobar uvod u veoma popularnu teoriju "Sebičnoga gena" Richarda Dawkinsa. Kroz knjigu ćete proći kratak uvod biologije kao znanosti i same ideje. Autor ističe neke stvari za koje smatra da su krivo interpretirane od strane kritičara i u velikom dijelu brani Dawkinsonovo djelo. Dobar uvod za čitanje "Sebičnoga gena" ukoliko to još niste učinili :)
