The 40th anniversary edition of the million copy international bestseller, with a new epilogue from the author. As relevant and influential today as when it was first published, this classic exposition of evolutionary thought, widely hailed for its stylistic brilliance and deep scientific insights, stimulated whole new areas of research.


  • Exquisite

    By Ptolemy III
    I read this book immediately after reading Behave by Robert Sapolsky, and all I can say is I’m grateful for this experience and I recommend it to any fans of science. I don’t have to reread sections to understand it, it’s written and read very well so I can follow along without rewinding or filling up a notebook.
  • Bad

    By Sir Rami #21
    Almost as bad as his “God delusion” book, but not quite as bad.
  • Terrible book with no evidence

    By Mani_1366
    This book is written purely based on personal opinion and it does not provide tangible and irrefutable evidence to support its argument. Waste of money.
