The Greatest Show on Earth : The Evidence for Evolution (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 420

The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution, by Richard Dawkins, is a book that summarizes the evidence that the theory of evolution is as undeniable a fact as any in Science.

Summary of the Book

Spread across 13 chapters, The Greatest Show on Earth describes the process of evolution beautifully. With the edge of Dr. Dawkins’s strong assertion, the book argues that evolution theory is not just a theory but an unquestionable fact of Science. Written in a lucid style, the book will help laymen understand evolution and why it is indeed the greatest show on earth. Tracing the human ancestry back to the dawn of all life on earth, this book certainly offers a riveting read until the very end.

About Richard Dawkins

Professor Clinton Richard Dawkins is an ethologist, evolutionary biologist, and a writer. He holds the prestigious position of emeritus fellow of New College, Oxford. Dawkins was the Professor for Public Understanding of Science at the University of Oxford from the year 1995 to 2008. He rose to fame with his book The Selfish Gene in 1976. This book made the gene-centred view of evolution very popular, and was also responsible for coining the word ‘meme'. Dawkins is an atheist, a vice president at the British Humanist Association, and is a supporter of the Brights movement.

Perfect and non-rebuttable. The best book on evolution and it's proofs.

Evolution, how it works, experiments, evidence, creationist's evidence debunked and a lot more... Explained so well that you start thinking. I was blown away by this book. Perfect in every sense. Go for it...

An Outstanding Book from an Outstanding Mind!

This a short, but brilliant account of Evolution over the eons.

The writing is lucid and ideas are communicated excellently; the occasional repetition of common sense, stated bluntly, (targeted mostly at superstitious people who believe in crop-circles, UFOs, alien invasion, and yes, creationism) by the author serves to introduce science and clarity of thought to the reader.

This is a must read book for any well educated person, and perhaps most importantly for educators, and academics.

A deserving 5/5!

the devil is in the details

the alternative probability going down. not just a superficial book skimming the surface but really explaining the things in as much detail as could be easily understood and even more if you try and want to.

Just Wonderful

I am still reading this wonderful book and just about to finish it but it is enough to judge that this book is beyond all doubts wonderful. I am just amazed that the West which gave us all the theories and all the science experiments and proofs of life still majorly believe that the Earth is only 10000 years or so old. Its true that religion makes you blind. Although its not against religion but against the idea that things just came be on earth and did not evolve. It sure is a excellent addition to one's book collection. 5/5 every time.

And Dawkins is one of the most beautiful science writers around. His lucid prose is like free flowing poetry. And in this work, he has given evidence of the lab experiments on some strain of fast growing bacteria, speed-forwarding evolution for us and documenting it.

Totally worth reading

If you love evolution, you will surely love this. And how could you not love it? It is written by Sir Richard Dawkins. Explains everything about evolution of all types. I loved the way he reviewed Darwin's and Lamarck
s theories. Looking forward to buy God Delusion.
