Reviews for 30th Anniversary Edition:

"Dawkins first book, The Selfish Gene, was a smash hit...Best of all, Dawkins laid out this biology-some of it truly subtle-in stunningly lucid prose. (It is, in my view, the best work of popular science ever written.)" --New York Review of Books

"This important book could hardly be more exciting." --The Economist

"The sort of popular science writing that makes the reader feel like a genius." --New York Times

"Who should read this book? Everyone interested in the universe and their place in it." --Jeffrey R. Baylis, Animal Behaviour

"This book should be read, can be read, by almost everyone. It describes with great skill a new face of the theory of evolution."--W. D. Hamilton, Science

"The presentations are remarkable for their clarity and simplicity, intelligible to any schoolchild, yet so little condescending as to be a pleasure to the professional." --American Scientist
