he's a liberal, atheist scientist and the book has to do with memetics and the advancement of desirable genetic traits appearing as the genes acting 'selfishly'.

it's not about a selfishness gene...it's basically an extrapolation of natural selection, positing that gene replicators within an organism will make sure desirable and advantageous traits perpetuate themselves.

you probably wouldn't like it.
