Personally I really enjoyed The Extended Phenotype . I am not a professional biologist, but I don't think it's too hard to follow if you read it shortly after finishing The Selfish Gene (although there were some sections that were quite difficult). I actually found some chapters of The Ancestor's Tale quite difficult to follow, especially towards the end of the book as it get's closer to the grand ancestor of all life.

But generally speaking I would say that Richard's books are fairly easy to follow, and for the most part probably easier to follow than some of the other Popular Science books out there.
