Though a tad light on the hard science, Dawkins' exemplary intelligence and passion make this a compelling read. Accessible to laymen and interesting enough to keep the attention of those who may not find biological textbooks to be utterly captivating beach reading material.
I simply cannot recommend this book enough. Objective, intelligent, scientific, and human. With a cool and steady narrative hand, Pinker accomplishes what Dawkins, whose fire is often his flaw, cannot. Necessary reading for all humans.
This book is essential reading for anyone interested in popular culture, journalism, politics, comedy etc. The narrator is likely the worst possible choice the publisher could have made and I sincerely hope they re-record it, but it is still far more than worth it.
