I'll probably have the book finished by the weekend and I'll try to get a review up. In short, however, it's like he read my mind - and then poured it on on paper far better than I could have done on my own. Sans Deity 09:24, 3 October 2006 (CDT)

Publications

I added a list of books written by Dawkins. I'm not sure it's exhaustive. Add any others you know of.

Books published are listed by their original publish year according to Dawkins' CV. The publisher and ISBN are, where available, the most recent USA paperback edition.

Charles Simonyi Professorship

As of December 1st, 2008 the Charles Simonyi chair at Oxford has given to Professor Marcus du Sautoy. Some of the websites (including the Simonyi professorship home page) have not been updated to reflect this, but Oxford put it in their news and Dawkins mentioned it.

I just made the change nice and simple. If someone wants to just reword the whole thing, feel free.
