One could imagine narrator Richard Dawkins as Darwin himself—British, sounding a little nerdy, and at ease with all the scientific names and terms. In Dawkins's voice, Darwin explains the most important discovery of biological knowledge ever made. The proposed mechanism by which life propagated and modified itself provoked a polemic conflict between science and religion that persists today, 149 years later. Probably few of Darwin's detractors or supporters have ever read his words, and this audio production allows any general reader an intelligent abridgment of what the great scientist proposed. Dawkins brings the famous words to life in an easy-access format for listeners. J.A.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
