A Brief Candle in the Dark

My Life in Science

Richard Dawkins

Summary: Dawkins’ autobiography, the second part. Up to his 70th birthday

Score: 70 / 100

The book starts right after publishing The Selfish Gene.

He talks his colleagues and people around him, from Douglas Adams to his colleagues and students.

He describes his work for TV and documentaries, Christmas lectures, personal life, publishing all the books he wrote.

The book ends with a survey of themes from his books, up to God Delusion.

He considers Climbing Mount Improbable as his most underrated book. So I should read it!
