Richard Dawkins' brilliant reformulation of the theory of natural selection have helped change the whole nature of the study of social biology, and have forced thousands of readers to rethink their beliefs about life.
In this classic first book, The Selfish Gene, Dawkins explains how the selfish gene can also be a subtle gene. The world of the selfish gene revolves around savage competition and ruthless exploitation. Yet, Dawkins argues, acts of apparent altruism do exist in nature. Bees will commit suicide when they sting to protect the hive, and birds will risk their lives to warn the flock of an approaching hawk.
This audiobook edition of Dawkins' fascinating book retains all original material, including all additional material in subsequent re-releases.
