it was amazing

An excellent collection of essays by Dawkins. People who accuse him of being belligerent, dogmatic, or militant have clearly either not actually read his work, or they have approached the books with a pre-conceived idea. His writing is lucid and illuminating. His reviews of Gould's work show just how much the differences between them have been exaggerated by people whose intention it is is to discredit evolutionary theory.
On a side note, Dawkins had the same gripe about the excess of mind-numbing baseball statistics minutia that marred the "Wonderful Life" by Gould that I had.
