A couple of posts ago, I wrote a review of E. O. Wilson’s recent book on the evolution of human and insect cooperation, The Social Conquest of Earth. Someone pointed out to me recently that Richard Dawkins, one of the best science writers alive today, later wrote one himself here. Although we both wrote a negative review, can you guess which review is better written?
