Richard Dawkins – The Blind Watchmaker: Why the Evidence of Evolution Reveals a Universe without Design

Possibly the best book ever written on evolution, for the delivery as much as the content. Dawkins uses compelling, relatable examples, grounded partly in his own experiments, to show how elaborate designs can emerge without a designer. He does it bit by bit, working with the reader to tease out insights, revealing more as he goes until everything ties together. Dawkins can sometimes be a bit strident, but he is a master educator. His illustrations of biomorphs and his explanation of how something as complex as the human eye can arise without an intelligent designer are two of the standout discussions in the book. Highly, highly recommended.
