James Donaldson’s Book Review – The Selfish Gene – Richard Dawkins

 

 

The Selfish Gene

Author, Richard Dawkins, does an outstanding job in laying out a lot of scientific evidence of why living organisms (humans included) do what they do throughout nature.  Is it a simple matter of survival, or do most living organisms actually undergo a process of “cost/benefit” analysis?

This book does a wonderful job of giving some fantastic examples of animal/human behavior and how so much of it is driven by our genetic makeup.  Essentially, genes are using the various living organisms that they inhabit, to procreate and carry on the next generation of themselves.

 

 

I learned so much from this book, and it kept me captivated and fascinated throughout.
