Carefully constructed and clearly written, this is practically a primer on evolutionary biology. None of Dawkins' strident atheism appears in this 30-year-old book, despite his argument against creationism.
The polemic tone that Dawkins is so good at mars the latter parts of the latter chapters. In the early chapters, where computer generated biomorphs are utilized to help explain evolution, the computer-related parts are not well explained, even in the appendix.
The robust prose, though, is always energetic, refreshing, and infects the reader with the author's enthusiasm.
I am a Dawkins fan, but this one is insufferably boring, unless you are the kind of nerd that enjoys endless pages of computer-drawn squiggles meant to simulate natural selection. YAWN. Read The Greatest Show on Earth instead. Same subject matter, but excellent prose instead of computer squigglies.
