RICHARD DAWKINS @ Berkeley Arts & Letters
Richard Dawkins' The God Delusion created a storm of controversy over the question of Gods existence. Now, in The Greatest Show on Earth, Dawkins presents a stunning counterattack against advocates of Intelligent Design that explains the evidence for evolution while keeping an eye trained on the absurdities of the creationist argument.

More than an argument of his own, its a thrilling tour into our distant past and into the interstices of life on earth. Taking us through the case for evolution step-by-step, Dawkins looks at DNA, selective breeding, anatomical similarities, molecular family trees, geography, time, fossils, vestiges and imperfections, human evolution, and the formula for a strong scientific theory. Dawkins trademark wit and ferocity is joined by an infectious passion for the beauty and strangeness of the natural world, proving along the way that the mechanisms of the natural world are more miraculous  a greater show  than any creation story generated by any religion on earth.

"Dawkins is a gifted explainer. His purpose, like that of Carl Sagan before him, is to reunite the words wonder and science." - Audubon

Richard Dawkins is a world-renowned evolutionary biologist and author. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society and, until recently, held the Charles Simonyi Chair of Public Understanding of Science at Oxford University. His first book, The Selfish Gene, was an instant international bestseller, and has become an established classic work of modern evolutionary biology. He is also the author of The Blind Watchmaker, River Out of Eden, Climbing Mount Improbable, Unweaving the Rainbow, A Devils Chaplain, The Ancestors Tale, and most recently, The God Delusion.
