Product description

Amazon Review

Few scientific theories have been as influential or controversial in the past few centuries as Darwin's thoughts on natural selection; even now, laymen and scientists find fault with Darwin's argument. Richard Dawkins, the chair of the communication of science at Oxford University, has delivered a well-researched book supporting and supplementing Darwin's theories. Although not a work of Darwinian proportions, Climbing Mount Improbable is an advancement of those theories for scientists and general readers alike. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

A beautiful, barnstorming thunderclap of a book (Michael White Mail on Sunday)

Mount Improbable is Dawkins's metaphor for natural selection: its peaks standing for evolution's most complex achievements ... a perfect, elegant riposte to a great deal of fuzzy thinking (Observer)

One of the most gifted storytellers of our generation ... he writes like an angel (Scotland on Sunday)

A cracking good book (John Gribbin)
