El gen egoísta book cover

El gen egoísta

40th Anniversary Edition (Oxford Landmark Science)

Richard Dawkins

"The Selfish Gene" caused a wave of excitement among biologists and the general public when it was first published in 1976. Its vivid rendering of a gene's eye view of life, in lucid prose, gathered together the strands of thought about the nature of natural selection into a conceptual framework with far-reaching implications for our understanding of evolution. Time has confirmed its significance. Intellectually rigorous, yet written in non-technical language, "The Selfish Gene" is widely regarded as a masterpiece of science writing, and its insights remain as relevant today as on the day it was published.

Mind blowing book. “The Selfish Gene” by Richard Dawkins. But warning you, it’s too true for most people to handle...      fuente
One of the earliest books I remember reading on evolutionary biology was The Selfish Gene, which I found “unspeakably beautiful” in its own way. I wonder what younger me would think of seeing this tweet.      fuente
@heycopygirl @wariCrew Such an incredible book!!      fuente
Three crucial books on our origins & our natures:      fuente
An explanation of evolution since the beginning of life that explains things from the perspective of individual genes.      fuente
@philoinvestor @SridharanAnand There are many books on this but the ones I like the most are quite old. Selfish gene and blind watchmaker. Both by Dawkins.      fuente
@radioriley @RichardDawkins Yes, excellent book, also his The Blind Watchmaker.      fuente
Turned evolutionary biology on its head and was written like a great detective story.      fuente
Had a profound influence on me pretty early on.      fuente
It just seemed to explain everything.      fuente
I had to read the Selfish Gene twice before I fully understood it and there were things I believed all my life that weren't so and I think it's just wonderful when you have those experiences.      fuente
