"A must-read for every student of the natural sciences. A classic....An excellent source for heated discussion..."--Paul Munro, University of Pittsburgh

"Well written with excellent examples, Dawkins presents a clear text of Behavior Genetics ideas."--Miriam R. Linver, University of Arizona

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst copy; best book
Reviewed in India on November 24, 2018
I don't know who packed this particular copy for me. A leftover.. within two-three readings, all parts will become separate pieces. The person must have saved good ones for shops and this types of copies for fools like me. The book is a very good one, I know. The copy bad one.
