WRT the lady who asked if it was Richard's conscious decision to use simpler and simpler language over the years, and Richard replying that each was addressed to a different audience:

I'd like it if Richard writes books for an audience that has read The Selfish Gene and The Extended Phenotype. I consider The God Delusion "light reading"... something to read for a quick laugh, but essentially, I did not come across much that I had not figured out already for myself. (The Smolin bits were entirely new to me.)

Please, please, please.... write books for MEEEEE ! Oh, I'd also like extended video versions of The Selfish Gene and The Extended Phenotype. There! I announced my Christmas list in January.
