Richard Dawkins has been justly described as the world's most famous atheist and evolutionary biologist. This memoir might be the best answer yet to how the author of The Selfish Gene and The God Delusion became the person he is. An Appetite for Wonder presents him a churchgoing boy growing up in colonial Kenya whose reading of Darwin in teenage awakened both a deeper interest in science and a firm skepticism about religious dogma. Dawkins' renowned eloquence and fervor emerge impressively as he describes his idyllic childhood, his Oxford education, his emergence as an independent thinker, and the creation of his seminal The Selfish Gene.
