I Evoke Brow XVII: “Sjutton också!”

The Blind Watchmaker, Richard Dawkins

This book could have spared me from half of a dreadful semester of high school biology.  It is a concise, exceedingly well-laid out defense of evolutionary theory.  I don't understand why books like this aren't used in curricula in place of textbooks.  The most educational books of my life haven't been textbooks (sometimes they haven't even been nonfiction); the one that immediately springs to mind is The Structure of Scientific Revolutions.  Like that book, Watchmaker is essential reading.
