Another coincidence, I just started reading TBW a couple of weeks ago - it takes me a long time to read a book. But hey, you can only read a book once for the first time, though there is that blurred recording of the eponymous Horizon programme. I still have to read The Ancestors Tale, and I'm saving The Extended Phenotype till last as I anticipate some problems with that one. I found the kaleidoscopic embryology of arthromorphs in CMI was hard going.

"In the course of this very substantial and always meticulously sustained argument, Dawkins writes things that one feels he might not choose to write now, on punctuated equilibrium, cladism and other clashes of heresy and orthodoxy, doctrine and ritual within the broad church of evolutionary argument... " - What things might they be I wonder?
