Darwins Angel pokes the holes in Dawkins arguments easily (it does not take much) and with a great deal of wit. That is the great enjoyment of the book. Cornwell uses the guise of Darwins Angel who becomes Dawkins Angel as he parades around as to be Darwins heir, of which Darwin I am sure would be horrified although I am sure Professor Dawkins would think it a great mark of respect for Darwin to be associated with him.
Each argument is dealt with and the flaws in the logic appear all too apparent, and there are some laugh out loud moments. An entertainng book with a very serious purpose!
