Publisher's Summary

Learn about the life of richard dawkins and modern science in a fraction of the time it takes to read the actual book!

Brief Candle in the Dark: My life in Science is a greatly interesting book. From one who doesn't understand the deeper biological systems and natural selection, genetics, and Darwinian Theory fully, much of it was easy to read. There are a set of stories Dawkins tells in this book, anecdotes and recollections of some of the major points he has experienced in the second half of his working life. Dawkins himself tells you there is no particular timeline to this book, it is more a stream of consciousness, a casual recounting of his life. Despite this, there is a sense of the passage of time as he recounts some of the stories, most amusing, some controversial and a few sad, which have shaped his view of the world and his life.

In his 12 published books, Dawkins has developed and honed many evolutionary and genetic theories, which he summarizes in the second half of the book. He uses extracts and written evidence from his own books and other sources, quoting his own and the words of others to demonstrate these theories and some of the responses to them.
