Born into a family of scientists, Richard Dawkins was destined to be a biologist. In his own words he selects stories from his childhood and college years, revealing how he struggled against close-minded teachers, embracing atheism early in his teenage. His continuous companion was his scientific mind, hungry with the need for knowledge about how our race came to be in this world. Witty and humorous throughout, this is the story of a man who has explained mankind's existence the best in recent times.
