About Clinton Richard Dawkins

Richard Dawkins is an English ethologist, evolutionary biologist, and author who has an estimated net worth of $10 million. He earned his fortune from book sales, science career, as well as television and film appearances.

Born Clinton Richard Dawkins on March 26, 1941 in Nairobi, Kenya, he gained recognition in 1976 from his book The Selfish Gene. He followed that up with The Extended Phenotype, an expansion of the ideas present at end of his first book.

Pro-science and anti-religion, Dawkins serves as the president of the British Humanist Association and is also a supporter of the Brights movement. He is popular for his criticism of creationism and intelligent design, subjects he discusses extensively in his work.

Richard Dawkins has written several other popular books, including River Out of Eden: A Darwinian View of Life (1995), Climbing Mount Improbable (1996), Unweaving the Rainbow (1997), A Devil’s Chaplain (2003)   and The Ancestor’s Tale (2004). He also makes regular appearances on radio and television.

In 2006, Dawkins wrote the book The God Delusion, in which he argues against the existence of a supernatural creator, declaring religious faith a delusion. By January 2010, the English-version of the book had sold more than two million copies. It has also been translated into 31 languages.
