Great book, almost too much for the those who only have a passing interest in evolution. If there are creationists who can read this book and still believe the world is 5000 years old, I do not know what to say. One and a half thumbs up. Read full review

Richard Dawkins knows how to write, that's for sure. I bought this on release day, and I couldn't put it down until I was done.
