    Description

    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.

    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.

    The Greatest Show on Earth by Richard Dawkins.

    This book explains, relying upon thorough and exhaustive evidences and secondary data, that the theory of Darwin about the processes of evolution of life over millions of years is an eternal truth and is the very foundation of science as well as scientific attitude.
    It reflects the strong bias in favour of superstition and blind faith propelled by the institutions of various religions concerning supernatural factors and 'God created or facilitated everything for formation of Life " type in ...

    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.

    Flipkart service was great as usual!
