ISBN: 0465069908

How did the replication bomb we call " Life" begin and where in the world or rather, in the universe, is it heading? Writing with characteristic wit and an ability to clarify complex phenomena (the "The New York Times" described his style as " the sort of science writing that makes the reader feel like a genius" ), Richard Dawkins confronts the ancient mystery. " Dawkins is above all a masterly expositor, a writer who understands the issues so clearly that he forces his readers to understand them too. "River Out of Eden" displays these virtues to the full." - "-New York Times Book Review" " Dawkins has gone to the heart of his subject and presented it with energy, insight, verve." -- "Los Angeles Times" " [River Out of Eden] abounds with metaphors that make things brilliantly clear....an excellent introduction to many important evolutionary ideas." -- "Nature"

"An excellent introduction to many important evolutionary ideas". "--Nature"

"Dawkins is above all a masterly expositor, a writer who understands the issues so clearly that he forces his readers to understand them in full". "--New York Times Book Review"
