The ones in red are books, the other textbooks. Genome is good if your not doing biology, its an easy read and rather enjoyable.
The selfish gene is worth reading even if you think you understand evolution.
"Tree of life" is about ape evolution, its really interesting, but its not so much a page turner :P
