THE MAKING OF THE FITTEST DNA and the Ultimate Forensic Record of Evolution

by | Read by Patrick Lawlor

Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

In a modern coda to Darwin's laws, Sean Carroll examines the evolutionary concept of the "fittest." Although not intended for casual readers, the audiobook discusses in satisfying scientific detail the current knowledge of evolution on a molecular basis and labels it "genomics." Narrator Patrick Lawlor picks just the right pace for such a weighty tome, leaving enough time for listeners to absorb great detail but not be narcotized. He never misses with the complex vocabulary and finds an agreeable tone to keep listener interest high. Those who know Lawlor's other readings will again be amazed at his proficiency with the requirements of so many kinds of literature. An open mind will find the audiobook challenging and rewarding.
