    As the author of many classic works on science and philosophy, Richard Dawkins has always asserted the irrationality of belief in God and the grievous harm it has inflicted on society. He now focuses his fierce intellect exclusively on this subject, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes.

    Story

    Sure, he was preaching (pun intended) to the converted, but Richard Dawkins also gives you a lot to think about in this great book. I was facilitated as I listened to different theories on why religious folk can be such nut bags. Give it a listen, test your faith or confirm your convictions.

  • The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution

    In The Greatest Show on Earth, Richard Dawkins takes on creationists, including followers of 'Intelligent Design' and all those who question the fact of evolution through natural selection. Like a detective arriving on the scene of a crime, he sifts through fascinating layers of scientific facts and disciplines to build a cast-iron case: from the living examples of natural selection in birds and insects.

    Story

    Richard Dawkins again brings out the intellectual goods and explains Darwin's 'Fact of Evolution' in terms anyone can understand, but at the same time doesn't dumb it down. If you don't believe in evolution before reading this, you will after.

    Three decades have passed since Wraith Squadron carried out its last mission. Taking on the most dangerous and daring operations, the rogues and misfits of the elite X-Wing unit became legends of the Rebellion and the Second Galactic Civil War, before breaking up and going their separate ways. Now their singular skills are back in vital demand - for a tailor-made Wraith Squadron mission. A powerful general in the Galactic Alliance Army, once renowned for his valor, is suspected of participating in the infamous Lecersen Conspiracy, which nearly toppled the Alliance back into the merciless hands of the Empire.

    Story

    A good story and continuation of the tale in the previous books but still seems to be missing some of that Star Wars charm.

    Award winning sci-fi writer Michael Moorcock writes a thrilling all-new adventure featuring the 11th Doctor and Amy.

    There are dark tides running through the universe - so strong they swallow light and threaten Captain Cornelius's familiar existence; if unchecked they will absorb the whole of Creation. But for now he tracks into the solar winds, searching for the only being he acknowledges as his peer: who is known simply as 'the Doctor'.

    Story

    If you put a book of eccentric British terms together in a blender and mixed them with some bad story telling and then had the result read out by one of the worse voice talents to read an Audiobook that I have heard, this is what you would end up with. It was crap and try as I might, I could not get through it. Bad character voices, mixed with a shocking story make this the worse purchase I have made from Audible to date. I hated it. I did not feel the presence of the Doctor in it for even one second. It could have been anyone.

    Story

    Frank W. Abagnale was one of the most daring conmen, forgers, imposters, and escape artists in history. In his brief but notorious criminal career, Abagnale donned a pilot's uniform and copiloted a Pan Am jet, masqueraded as the supervising resident of a hospital, practiced law without a license, passed himself off as a college sociology professor, and cashed over $2.5 million in forged checks, all before he was 21. His story is now a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks.

    I was fully engrossed in this book, enjoying it on a whole new level from the movie, but then it just ended. So disappointed. Still I recommend a listen.
