  1. Fantastic read. 

    If only this book was the basis of the science curriculum at school, i would have probably pursued a career in biology rather than in chemistry. 

    I immediately purchased ‘The Selfish Gene’. 

  2. I see this information is on a similar discussion on the old site.

    Nitin – the paperback does have a few small illustrations by Dave McKean, but far fewer than the hardback.

    I personally think it is worth the extra to buy a fully illustrated version.
