Then in 2006, Dawkins transformed the world's cultural and intellectual landscape once again with The God Delusion, a takedown of religious faith, which has sold millions of copies around the world--nearly one million in the United States alone. He has since used his celebrity to further the cause of secular thought and provoke public debate.
In this, his first memoir, characterized by Dawkins' trademark vicious wit and dazzling eloquence, he tells the fascinating story of how this hugely influential man learned to think, to ask questions, and to forge great ideas. From his idyllic childhood in colonial Kenya to the raucous debates at Berkeley and Oxford, Dawkins shares here, for the first time, the details of his intellectual awakening and the thrilling path to the creation of The Selfish Gene.
