LIFE'S EDGE The Search for What It Means to Be Alive

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Joe Ochman

Contemporary Culture • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

This fascinating and thoroughly engaging audiobook will appeal to a great many listeners beyond those who follow developments in contemporary science. Popular science writer Carl Zimmer surveys a wide array of life forms and states of existence to answer some of the most fundamental questions about life. Joe Ochman is a narrator who knows how to pace a sentence in a way that enlivens even the most factual statements. Many of the issues raised here have ethical and political dimensions--for example, in abortion law, determining when life "begins." This evenhanded discussion will appeal to listeners on all sides of these issues for its unique perspectives on fundamental questions. D.A.W.
