I'll admit I was waning in my attention during this because I'm listening trying to find ways I can improve my life based on the principals in this book. Start Nice and Reciprocate is a wonderful life tip that was backed up with facts throughout the book, I'll remember this for a long time for it's interesting points about selfish behaviour and ultimate survival of the selfish organisms. It puts new perspective to my life and makes me want to leave Memes behind, not just my Genes! Thanks Richard :)
This book is one of those rare works that will change the way you think about life itself. Richard Dawkins' remarkably clear thinking and intelligent mind are on white hot display here. This book is highly recommended.
It was like listening to a lecture. Very interesting, entertaining and curiously appeared to have few dotted line reference to Hindu philosophy. Makes one wonder whether the ancient name of genes was Soul?
I'm new to audio books and don't know what an average length is but this felt very long. The Evolutionary Stable Systems early on though was fascinating and the game theory at the end was great.
It's an interesting topic of how our genes evolved. Very smart and academic. Great book, if you can follow.
She reads the original published book; he reads all the updates made since the publication of the original book. It's hard to keep up with all the tangents. By the time we come back to the female narrator we've forgotten what she was talking about. I wish they could release this book as the original. Tough book to follow.
