To be read with The Selfish Gene
on 13 June 2014
Dawkins calls this his "seminal work", that which he is prodest of and wishes to be remembered for. I do not blame him. On the contrary, it is an excellent extension of the thinking underlying the Selfish Gene, for which he gained his original notoriety. Although you should first read the Selfish Gene, as it will make a more comprehensive understanding of the implications of the view Dawkins expounds easier, the book can also be read on its own. The result -- if you truly understand and start to apply his perspective -- is a very different outlook on behavious, how others effect you and how existance operates. Very worth while read.
