    "This is not a good book for biopunk fans. It's not fiction and it's one of the most important factual books ever written on evolution. If you're looking for a biopunk novel, this will disappoint you because while it does feature biology, it's not going to be any type of science fiction novel."

    "Dune is a great book, and Simon Vance, the primary narrator of the audible version I'm listening to, has probably one of my favorite voices of all time."

    The Selfish Gene

    This Richard Dawkins' book on evolution explains how it is genes, rather than individuals, that are truly in charge of evolution of species, which would be the reason why two individuals who are very close genetically tend to act selflessly with the other.

    "So many people watch the movie without ever touching the source material, and indeed, they often don't even know it exists or that the movie wasn't an original idea to begin with. The book goes far more into the science (or pseudoscience/technobabble) portions of the biotechnological aspects, which I think many readers love--I know I do."

    "I read this book back in college and it was okay. However, I found most of the stories too unrealistic and quite frankly unbelievable. I can't say that I enjoyed it but I think some people might like it. "

    "Biopunk seems like a genre that isn't very popular but is a subgrenre that really interests people. This book is actually really popular, has a recognizable cover, is affordable, and is actually rated on amazon charts. This can easily fulfill this topic with ease."
