it was amazing

I love this book so much, I quote from it all the time -- drawing strange looks from people who (oddly enough) do not share my passion for DNA. I buy extra copies to give to friends. Why is every ancestor of ours a success? Why are we cousins of almost everyone we meet, including our own spouse? Answers are in the book. Such elegant logic, such beautiful imagery, Dawkins reads like a poet more than a scientist. While I don't agree with all his conclusions or all his science, I love to read anything he writes, just because he writes so well, with such conviction and passion for his subject, even a layman like me can get it.
