No new posts The Sound and the Fury - by William Faulkner

Book #74: November & December 2009 (Fiction) • Book Discussion Leader: DWill

No new posts The Extended Phenotype: The Long Reach of the Gene - by Richard Dawkins

Book #73: November & December 2009 (Non-Fiction)

The Extended Phenotype carries on from where The Selfish Gene takes off. It is a fascinating look at the evolution of life and natural selection. Dawkins's theory is that individual organisms are replicators that have extended phenotypic effects on society and the world at large, thus our genes have the ability to manipulate other individuals.
