“Dazzling in originality and scope, with beautiful illustrations, this is a wonderful celebration of the power of natural selection. Richard Dawkins reveals with brilliant clarity the imprint on organisms of their evolutionary past.”-Nick Davies, author of Cuckoo: Cheating By Nature

“Once again, Richard Dawkins asks us to look at the living world in a totally novel way: Every organism carries, in its genes, a record of the past environments in which its ancestors survived. This brilliant new way of interpreting nature opens our eyes to both the past and the future.”-John R. Krebs, author of Food: A Very Short Introduction and coauthor, An Introduction to Behavioral Ecology
