Product description

Review

A beautiful, barnstorming thunderclap of a book -- Michael White ― Mail on Sunday

Mount Improbable is Dawkins's metaphor for natural selection: its peaks standing for evolution's most complex achievements ... a perfect, elegant riposte to a great deal of fuzzy thinking ― Observer

One of the most gifted storytellers of our generation ... he writes like an angel ― Scotland on Sunday

A cracking good book -- John Gribbin
