Book Overview
The metaphor of Mount Improbable represents the combination of perfection and improbability that is epitomized in the seemingly designed complexity of living things. Dawkins skillfully guides the reader on a breathtaking journey through the mountain's passes and up its many peaks to demonstrate that following the improbable path to perfection takes time. Evocative illustrations accompany Dawkins's eloquent descriptions of extraordinary adaptations such as the teeming populations of figs, the intricate silken world of spiders, and the evolution of wings on the bodies of flightless animals. And through it all runs the thread of DNA, the molecule of life, responsible for its own destiny on an unending pilgrimage through time Climbing Mount Improbable is a book of great impact and skill, written by the most prominent Darwinian of our age.
