THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH The Evidence for Evolution

by | Read by Richard Dawkins, Lalla Ward

Contemporary Culture • 14.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

"All except the woefully informed accept that evolution is a fact," maintains author Richard Dawkins. In scientific language peppered with trivial asides and occasional British slang, he mounts a credible attack on the creationists. Dawkins generates a modern argument for evolution by citing genetic experiments and evidence from the fossil record. He also includes side discussions of supporting subjects such as natural clocks, embryology, and molecular structure. The author and Lalla Ward narrate in relay, taking turns with phrases and paragraphs. The distracting effect of dueling voices strains the continuity in this demanding nonfiction audio. In their praise, the pair's perfect enunciation and appropriate pace allow listeners to readily absorb the abundant facts and figures.
