“A century from now historians will take note of a mere handful of scientific luminaries from the second half of the 20th century who chasnged not just their science but their culture. First among them will surely be Richard Dawkins, unquestionably one of the great minds Of our time who is also an eloquent writer. Brief Candle in the Dark gives those future historians his pathway to greatness that begins with the publication of his monumental The Selfish Gene in 1976, and climaxes with the book that may do more to elevate atheism to a legitimate position than any that came before — The God Delusion — whose impact reverberates still. -- Michael Shermer, Scentific American columnist

 

In Brief Candle in the Dark, Dawkins explores the halls of intellectual inquiry and stardom he encountered after the publication of The Selfish Gene; affectionately lampooning the world of academia, publishing, and television. Studding the pages with funny stories about the great men and women he’s known, Dawkins offers a candid look at the events and ideas that encouraged him to shift his attention to the intersection of culture, religion and science, culminating in that stunning blockbuster, The God Delusion, which was a huge factor in transforming him into the vibrant and controversial public intellectual he is today.

 

“Richard Dawkins always writes like he’s telling you a story, which is why so many of us non-science people understand science better than we used to. But when the story is his own life, it’s doubly compelling.” — Bill Maher

 

Among Dawkins’ other books are: An Appetite for Wonder, Climbing Mount Improbable, Unweaving the Rainbow, The Ancestor’s Tale and The Greatest Show on Earth. He is a fellow of the Royal Society and was the inaugural holder of the Simonyi Chair for the Public Understanding of Science at Oxford University. reverberates still. -- Michael Shermer, Scentific American columnist

 

Brian Edwards-Tiekert is the host of KPFA’s outstanding weekday show, UpFront.
