A primer on the field of memetics, that, unfortunately, suffers from the author's (very) dry prose. The coverage is decent, but wouldn't recommend it for casual readers.

There is interesting aspect in this book, in that the author refuses to use terminology "meme" (though with good reason, see the appendix). Those who have glimpses into the field may think it passable, however it is guaranteed to at least confuse (or frustrate) readers trying to learn it the first time.
