The narration was fabulous and the content was worth a listen, but only barely. The arguments put forth were very detailed, but obvious. To some degree, I think that Dawkins was just preaching to the choir, because I don't think that the book would change anyone's attitudes.
Very enjoyable presences. Their sense of timing was excellent.
There weren't any shocking revelations or moments of sudden insight. What Dawkins does, though, is put together a very detailed argument and that's worth a listen.
A number of things would have to change. First, the author needs to explain how his expertise is more credible than others. Second, the reader, who really does have a wonderful, dramatic voice, needs to quicken his pace. With such a deep, dramatic voice, slowing down to the snails pace he kept made him sound drunk.
My next book was Nate Silver's "The Signal and the Noise."
The author who is clearly present at all times in the most narcissistic way.
