Okay, so I admit that the title is a bit hyberbolic, but I am excited enough to receive my copy of Richard Dawkins' The Greatest Show on Earth
to post about it. This may just be the book that will make the perfect Winter Solstice gift to the creationist in your family. From the reviews I have read, this book will make an undeniable case for evolution. In this regard, it will be different from Dawkins' previous books which treats evolution as the sound theory that it is.
It looks hefty, but thumbing through it I notice that the typeface is large and there are quite a few pictures and photographs, some in color and quite pleasing to the eye. I don't think this will be as heavy of a read as his previous works but I look forward to gobbling it up in the coming days.
If you haven't yet, stop by Think Atheist's bookstore and order it
. It portals through to Amazon.com and it helps to support the site and the community.
Happy trails and I'll see some of you over in Think Atheist's online book club, Read Atheist
for further, in depth discussion on The Greatest Show on Earth
