As influential today as when it was first published, The Selfish Gene has become a classic exposition of evolutionary thought. Professor Dawkins articulates a gene’s eye view of evolution – a view giving center stage to these persistent units of information and in which organisms can be seen as vehicles for their replication. This imaginative, powerful and stylistically brilliant work not only brought the insights of Neo-Darwinism to a wide audience, but galvanized the biology community, generating much debate and stimulating whole new areas of research. Forty years later, its insights remain as relevant today as on the day it was published.

Oxford Landmark Science books are ‘must-read’ classics of modern science writing which have crystallized big ideas and shaped the way we think.

  1. Elango Jeeva (Verified Purchase)

    Written in the best possible way for the common folks to understand. This book gives an insight into the selfishness shown by our genes and the altruism that we show towards our kin. After reading this book I started seeing myself as a different being. It is a must read. And also I would like to mention that the book was delivered in good condition.

  2. Aniket Gaurav (Verified Purchase)

    Mr. Dawkins through this book has opened a floodgate of whole new ideas on the theory of evolution. In the book he has brought out the genes eye view of evolution in the most impressive style through myriads of arguments and analysis. Though his ideas may be unconventional to many readers nonetheless they are true. No doubt this is one of the finest books the human mind has ever produced.

  3. Geetha George (Verified Purchase)

    Whether one likes it or not the struggle between genes and intelligence has already begun. It remains to be seen whether the two continue to remain symbiotic or, part ways at some time in the future. Perhaps, only time can tell. Highly recommended!

  4. pintu banerjee (Verified Purchase)

    The way author explained evolution is just amazing. He even provided arguements in support of aswell as against his explanation at the end of the book. It quite transformed my outlook and added meaning to my understanding. The only thing that I could complain of is that he did not mention or describe the mathematical models from which he deduced certain conclusions at various points witin the text. Why should I take a number or ratio for granted? – only this explanation has been left out of this book, rest is mind blowing!

  5. Sanjib Goswami (Verified Purchase)

    Must read – for all those who science. Not meant for fundamentalists and gullible people. Open minded, rational academicians will love this book, that explains human life from the evolutionary scientific point of view.
