  why are we here ? because we`re here.roll the bones

| | See all frankpoole's reviews (433)

yet another stunning book that shows evolution up for what it was/is-a roll of the dice with no devine intervention or guiding thought behind it all.to coin a phrase from the terminator films "the future is not set,there is no fate but what we make ourselves".darwin was right all along,there is no ghost in the machine.all we can do is enjoy ourselves while we can.we wont be back this way again.buy it,read it,live it.

  A true classic

If you have an interest in evolution this is a must read. It turns the way many people "understand" evolution on its head and shows that the driving force behind it is a simple replicator, and we are just an extrordinary side effect of a basically simple process.
A classic science text that also appeals to the non-proffesional, and a gripping read too !
