E.O. Wilson   "The Diversity of Life".  A beautifully written book written by the worlds greatest living biologist. 


E.O. Wilson is one of my biologist heroes. The others being David Sloan Wilson and Stephen Jay Gould.

If you're new to evolution I'd save "The Blind Watchmaker" for your second book.  It's great.  I think that just about anyone with an interest in the subject can pick it up and read.  I just think you may appreciate it more if you had a bit more background.

Also if you can't read, why don't you listen to a podcast?  An EXCELLENT one is Evolution 101.  They are short podcast that will give you a good base to build upon.

Blind watchmaker also took abiogenesis to task, covering all that messy life history before we finally got to the DNA+Protein.
