The Selfish Gene - Richard Dawkins This book is about the gene-centered view of evolution. Dawkins is a strong advocate of this view and he presents neat supporting evidence for it here. The Selfish Gene certainly shakes some preconceived views about our bodies and other forms of life.

I can't say I believe everything he says about the gene, but I'm more inclined to believe the gene-centered view of evolution after reading this book.
