To Richard Dawkins,
Although The Selfish Gene did not cause me to convert, this was the first book I bought the day after my conversion in 1998 and it is still one of my all-time favorites. I was depressed because of the conversion but your book helped me enter into adulthood. I subsequently read all your books up to that point. I tried to find your email around that time but you did not have Dawkins.net up yet. Now that you’re world famous, I’m glad to have been interested in your works before you became popular.
