Subtitled "A Life in Science," Dawkins's book is not a straight biography but a discussion of his public and professional lives. As narrator, the evolutionary biologist, most known for the book THE SELFISH GENE, is somewhat soft-spoken but clear, expressive, and authoritative when required. His manner is natural, as if he were simply having a conversation about his life. His pacing is excellent, and he conveys his feelings effectively with intonation and manner. Since it's his book and his life, we get his authentic reactions, including, for instance, one point when he seems to choke up. This is an interesting, intelligent, and appealing survey of a civilized (in the best sense) and accomplished life, a pleasurable program listeners will be sorry to finish.
