Richard Dawkins

Quite right, Tom; the gentleman's name is Richard Dawkins. However, I'm not 
sure of the wisdom of recommending his work to anyone. Several eminent 
scientists, such as Richard Lewontin, have demonstrated that the ideas and 
theories in "The Selfish Gene" and Dawkins' subsequent works in the same 
vein comprise nothing more than a palpable fantasy.
