Ancestor's Tale updated?  Well, gotta go for it.

I have zero doubt, by the way, that his celebrity status is causing NHS to be sure they give him the best service possible, anyway.  Just like USPS made sure Ann Landers got her mail with no fuss.  She was useful to them, retorting in a column read by millions, to people who complained about their shitty service.

Yes, that ''money means privilege'' is a real sore spot with me.

Comment by Stephen on April 6, 2016 at 8:05pm

That's one thing I like about Richard Dawkins, even with all his wealth from all the books he has wrote he still uses the NHS he really supports the idea of  social medicine. After all he could have used his wealth to gain privilege and jump ahead of people. Good for him I say.

Yes, he is doing well by all accounts.

For this type of book, I like the real thing to have in my bookcase.

An April 4th Update from Richard

First, thank you for the (c 1300) lovely birthday wishes that you have sent in to https://richarddawkins.net/2016/03/richards-75th-birthday-messages/.

Also for the (c 500) good wishes for my recovery at  https://richarddawkins.net/2016/02/an-update-on-richards-condition-in-his-own-words/. I seem to be recovering according to plan. The physiotherapist and other aftercare therapists have completed their six weeks of home visits. At least one of them came to my house every single day except weekends, which I think is astonishingly good service, considering that it was all totally free, on the NHS, as was my stay in hospital complete with scans and specialist medical attention. I can now type with both hands, fast but still inaccurately. Still get tired, still can’t sing (not a great hardship), still speak croakily. My balance is improving with physio exercises such as impersonating a stork standing on one leg. And I can ride my bike, albeit a little unsteadily on tight corners. Blood pressure still veers toward the high side, despite medication, and I’m under orders to avoid long distance travel or getting involved in controversy. Controversy? Moi?

Bestselling author of The Selfish Gene Professor Richard Dawkins and fellow evolutionary biologist and television presenter Dr Yan Wong talk about the new updated version of their original work on evolution, The Ancestor’s Tale.

The book was originally published in 2004. It is a pilgrimage back in time through four billion years to the origin of life. Dawkins and Wong take the reader on a reverse journey from human kind back to the microbial beginnings of life. The original work featured 40 tales of meetings with fellow modern animals, plants, fungi and bacteria, all tracing their origins back in time.  The new version has been updated with three new tales, new diagrams and includes new scientific discoveries of the last decade.
Dawkins is an evolutionary biologist who rose to public fame with his book The Selfish Gene. He is a noted atheist and patron of the British Humanist Association. Among his other popular books are The God Delusion and The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution. In 2013, he was voted the world’s top thinker in a poll of 10,000 readers of Prospect magazine.

Wong acted as researcher and co-author on The Ancestor’s Tale and is best known for his role as a presenter on the BBC’s Bang Goes the Theory.
