How did the replication bomb we call life begin and where in the world, or rather, in the universe, is it heading? Writing with characteristic wit and an ability to clarify complex phenomena (the New York Times described his style as the sort of science writing that makes the reader feel like a genius ), Richard Dawkins confronts this ancient mystery.
