Prominent evolutionary biologist and public intellectual Dawkins presents an autobiographical account of his youthful years, from his 1941 birth to the 1976 publication of The Selfish Gene, which helped popularize a gene-centric understanding of evolution. As title and subtitle suggest, it is primarily an intellectual autobiography, but Dawkins does discuss some family background as well as his impressions of his earliest years growing up in British colonial Kenya.
