Read from June 09 to 25, 2010

The toughest and most dense Dawkins I've read, but I suppose it is meant for biologists and not the casual reader. Dawkins' basic theory is blindingly simple and obvious, but can't have been at the time, as he spends about 13 chapters explaining it. If you can get past the discussion of haplidiploids and cistrons then this is a rewarding read...
