Climbing Mount Improbable
Mostly about how evolution is entirely scientifically possible in spite of seemingly impossibly complex things like the eye, or flight.
Excellent. Very clear and simple descriptions of his ideas, especially how eyes (probably) evolved.

The God Delusion
Dawkins presents his evidence for a lack of a god and also explains why he thinks that belief in God(s) can be a very dangerous and destructive thing.
Pretty good on the whole, easy read for an atheist, and beautifully logical. In some places he seems to be trying too hard, and I can see that he might annoy Christians as he sometimes suggests they are complete idiots.
Score: 7.5

The Greatest Show on Earth
More stuff on evolution, and how silly creationists are. Some fairly straightforward explanations and descriptions of some of the scientific methods.
Good, and with some nice pictures this time too.
