When it came out in '82 I thought The Extended Phenotype was the best book I'd ever read.

I still do. I usually end up reading that and Toward a New Philosophy of Biology once a year - it just puts all the other reports and papers in perspective.

I never get tired of thinking about things like the ant and the fungus. How much better is that than the fable about the ant and the grasshopper in describing the world through allegory.
