The Blind Watchmaker: Why the Evidence of Evolution Reveals a Universe without Design by Richard Dawkins
Synopsis: Acclaimed as the most influential work on evolution written in the last hundred years, The Blind Watchmaker offers an inspiring and accessible introduction to one of the most important scientific discoveries of all time. A brilliant and controversial book which demonstrates that evolution by natural selection – the unconscious, automatic, blind yet essentially non-random process discovered by Darwin – is the only answer to the biggest question of all: why do we exist?

The first ‘proper’ science book I ever read, when I was about 15. I found the book so fascinating that I remember trying to get my Biology teacher to talk about it at school, but she wouldn’t because we had an evangelical Christian in the class who had previously caused a kerfuffle when we were trying to learn about evolution. – From 10 Great Books on Chemistry and Stuff
