Business & Finance • 13.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Author Ridley provides a thorough discussion of how bottom-up trends, rather than top-down direction, are responsible for the evolution of everything--and he means everything. Narrator Steven Crossley reads in a precise, cultured tone that conveys the scholarship behind Ridley's expansive work. The audiobook covers examples of how this evolution of new ideas occurs in diverse fields--from literature and philosophy to many branches of science, including astronomy and, of course, biology. Given the breadth of the subject matter, Crossley is called upon to provide accurate pronunciations of names and technical terms from a variety of fields as well as quotations in a variety of languages. He delivers on those challenges, and his calm, even voice provides a perfect medium for Ridley's explanations of how new ideas evolve.
