5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic, 27 Jun. 2004
This review is from: The Blind Watchmaker (Paperback)
In The Blind Watchmaker Richard Dawkins makes a magnificent case for the Darwinian view of evolution by Natural Selection. All alternative theories are dismissed by rational argument and his book is extremely persuasive and extremely readable.
Natural Selection is virtually unique among modern scientific theories in being very conceptually straightforward (although so counter-intuitive that it took millennia for anyone to think of it). This has the advantage that the theory is very accessible to the lay reader, but that is to take nothing away from Dawkin's brilliance.
This isn't just a rehash of Darwin's original work, as so much has been learnt since that time about genetics, as well as many other developments in life sciences in over a century; but it deserves to stand alongside it as a classic of modern times.
