***30th Anniversary Edition***

Acclaimed as the most influential work on evolution written in the last hundred years, The Blind Watchmaker offers an inspiring and accessible introduction to one of the most important scientific discoveries of all time. A brilliant and controversial book which demonstrates that evolution by natural selection - the unconscious, automatic, blind yet essentially non-random process discovered by Darwin - is the only answer to the biggest question of all: why do we exist?

MEDIA REVIEWS

Richard Dawkins has updated evolution ... His subject is nothing less than the meaning of life, and he attacks it with the evangelical fervour of a clergyman and the mind of a scientist - The Times

Beautiful ... he seizes happy analogies, bright metaphors and shining images to light up his passion and our darkness - Guardian

Good writing, tight argument and unpulled punches ... a satisfying book - Economist

One of the best science books - one of the best of any books - I have ever read - Los Angeles Times

“Worst”

I have reason to say that this book is even worst than the book of worst jokes.
