Author of T

I recently bought a copy of Richard Dawkins’ excellent book “The God Delusion”. Glancing over Lydia asked me what it said on the front cover after ‘AUTHOR OF T’, the rest having been obscured by the large shop label.
Rather smartly I answered ‘well maybe “The Selfish Gene or The Blind Watchmaker”‘.
Tonight, noticing that neither would fit completely under the label given the size of the font, I carefully peeled back the sticker to find the rest of the sentence.

‘Author of the Year 2007’

    I read The Blind Watchmaker and thought that Dawkins was inspired. I then read The Selfish Gene and thought that he was brilliant but delusional and now he has written about delusion. On the upside I’m a prophet, on the downside there is yet another book that I want to read!

    I am about a third of the way through it. It is gripping (dictionary to hand essential in my case but learning some great new words!). The two part TV documentary “The Root of All Evil?” was excellent.
