River Out of Eden and A Universe from Nothing

In a recent reddit Q&A for the movie The Unbelievers, Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss mentioned their favorite books by the other:

Lawrence Krauss:
My favorite book of Richard's is River Out of Eden. It is the most beautifully concise description of evolution I've ever read, I liked it so much I sent Richard a fan letter when it appeared.
Richard Dawkins (his pick was also a Charlie Munger pick):
Universe from Nothing is my favourite book by Lawrence. Beautiful example of my maxim "If you could do physics by common sense, we wouldn't need physicists"

Dawkins' other prominent books on evolution are listed, HERE.
