Reviews

  • "[Dawkins] is a thunderously gifted science writer"

    Oliver Moody, The Times
  • "One of the best non-fiction writers alive today"

    Steven Pinker
  • "The illumination of Dawkins’ incisive thinking on the intellectual world extends far beyond biology. What a treat to see so clearly how matter and meaning fit together, from fiction to philosophy to molecular biology, all in one unified vision!’ Daniel C. Dennett"

    Daniel C. Dennett
  • "In this golden age of enlightened science writing it is stunning that no scientist has ever won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Pulitzer Prizes, yes, but it is time literature's highest award be granted to a scientist whose writings have changed not just science but society. No living scientist is more deserving of such recognition than Richard Dawkins, whose every book reflects his literary genius and scientific substance. Science in the Soul is the perfect embodiment of Nobel quality literature.""

    Michael Shermer, Publisher Skeptic magazine, columnist Scientific American, author The Moral Arc and Heavens on Earth
  • "I thank Thor and Zeus that in their infinite wisdom they chose to make the great wordsmith of our age a great rationalist and vice versa."

    Matt Ridley, author of The Rational Optimist and The Evolution of Everything
