In this revised edition of The Extended Phenotype, Richard Dawkins furthers his fascinating look at the evolution of life and natural selection. Dawkins proposes that we look at evolution as a battle between genes instead of between whole organisms, urging us to view phenotypes — the end products of genes, like eye color or leaf shape, which are usually considered to increase the fitness of an individual — as serving the evolutionary interests of genes. He makes a convincing case that considering one's body, personality, and environment as a field of combat in a kind of "arms race" between genes fighting to express themselves on a strand of DNA can clarify and extend the idea of survivor of the fittest. This theory continues that individual organisms are replicators that have extended phenotypic effects on society and the world at large; thus our genes actually have the ability to manipulate other individuals.

A worldwide bestseller, this influential and controversial book has become a classic in popular science writing. This new edition, featuring a new Afterword by Daniel. Dennett, further illuminates the complex world of genetics in an engaging, lively manner.
