The Greatest Show on Earth

by Richard Dawkins
New York: Free Press, 2009. 480 pages.

Reviewing The Greatest Show on Earth for RNCSE, Douglas Theobald wrote, "Dawkins outlines the goal for his latest tome in the introduction: 'Evolution is a fact, and this book will demonstrate it. No reputable scientist disputes it, and no unbiased reader will close the book doubting it.' That ostentatious declaration sets the bar high, but by the final flowery chapter, after over 400 pages of dramatic evidence, it is apparent that the author has successfully cleared the hurdle." Dawkins's books also include The Selfish Gene and The Blind Watchmaker.
