This book is not a blathering endless tedium of metaphors, as another reviewer has suggested. For the scientist and the layperson alike, this book is a measured and carefull explaination of what Darwinism is and isn't - one of the major thrusts of the book is to explain and expose myths that lie behind the creationist viewpoint that science 'isn't enough' to explain natural phenomenea. Even more encouraging, Dawkins elucidates the beauty and majesty of the fact of Evolution in a way that is seldom found in science. There is no preoccupation with technical language here, only honest, clear, and evocative images of what it truely is to be human, and what it truely 'means' to be alive. Dawkins asserts that it is human presumption that supposes answers to questions like 'Why does the Universe Exist?' I don't care if you are Christian, Jewish, or whatever -- if you have an interest in real, logical evidence of Evolution in the everyday world, written in a way even a teenager could understand, buy this book.
