The Selfish Gene

Tue 24 December 2013 by Thejaswi Puthraya

This book begins with a justification for the title because people misunderstood it and maligned 'evolution'. Richard Dawkins, the author, bases majority of the book on how the 'gene' is the focal point of all evolution (and not a group of species).

This book is probably the best guide on evolution. Like his other books and most books in this genre, it gets straight to the point and hence may be a hard read. But if you labour through this book, it will be totally worth it.
