Richard Dawkins’ latest book is due out next September. The title – Childhood, Boyhood, Truth: From an African Youth to The Selfish Gene
It’s yet a new genre for Dawkins – autobiography. Mind you he has reached the age where people do tend to write memoirs and autobiographies.
Richard says this book covers his life up to the writing of The Selfish Gene. There will be a second volume, published in 2015, covering the second half of his life.
I have enjoyed his other books and am looking forward to this one – especially as I have a special interest in scientific biography.
These two volumes will be a good read – he is an excellent writer and has had an interesting life, scientifically.
I wonder if it will get the same sort of emotional attacks his earlier books received?
