← Richard Dawkins' watchmaker still has the power to open our eyes

Styrer-'s Avatar Jump to comment 9 by Styrer-

My favourite book of Dawkins after 'The Selfish Gene' is this very same, and Radford pinpoints its brilliance as others have done before. It is one of the few books that I actually bring down from my bookshelf when in company.

That said, I must say I do not understand why this article is placed under 'latest news'. It's of course not latest news that this is a brilliant book - this is old news and hat together. It's a given.

I look to the 'Featured' part of this site to read endorsements of Dawkins' work, and to the 'Latest News' part for precisely that. There is a danger of making such worthwhile commentary seem unpleasantly self-regarding if not properly placed. If a third tier of 'Latest Dawkins News' were to be introduced, then perhaps this would be clearer for both compiler and reader alike.
