British zoologist Richard Dawkins turned evolutionary theory on its head when he published his book, "The Selfish Gene," in 1976. His recently released autobiography, "An Appetite for Wonder," sheds light on the first 35 years of Dawkins' life, from his birth in Kenya, to his fascination with science at Oxford, to the origin of his gene-centered view about natural selection. He joins us in the studio.

Guests:

Richard Dawkins, evolutionary biologist and emeritus fellow at the New College at Oxford University; author of "The Selfish Gene" and "An Appetite for Wonder"
