once more with feeling,
This review is from: Climbing Mount Improbable (Paperback)
Dawkins has done it again, that is, written a book on neo-Darwinism with great style and conviction, if little humor. His prose is truly exquisite and the details are wonderful.
The trouble is, with the exception of a new analogy - the evolved organism that emerges atop Mount Improbable after a series of unpredicatable adaptations - he has said almost all of it before. I liked his descriptions very much of vulture flight and other awe-inspiring natural adaptations, but they were the only items that were truly new to me. Indeed, his Mount Improbable analogy is not as good as the traditional depiction of the tree of life. Better to stick to his earlier classics.
