    The Blind Watchmaker, knowledgably narrated by author Richard Dawkins, is as prescient and timely a book as ever. The watchmaker belongs to the 18th-century theologian William Paley, who argued that just as a watch is too complicated and functional to have sprung into existence by accident, so too must all living things, with their far greater complexity, be purposefully designed. Charles Darwin's brilliant discovery challenged the creationist arguments; but only Richard Dawkins could have written this elegant riposte.

    Eric says: "Challenging textbook more than an enjoyable listen"

    Story
    Would you try another book from Richard Dawkins and/or Richard Dawkins and Lalla Ward ?

    No way would I purchase another book from this author.


    What was most disappointing about Richard Dawkins’s story?

    I purchased this book to learn more about evolution. Unfortunately, Dawkins is so busy getting in his own way with his pseudo-intellectualism, and majorly exhaustive definitions that he puts you to sleep. If you are looking for a cure for insomnia or are obsessed with bat sonar this is the book for you. Otherwise...


    How could the performance have been better?

    The performance was fine. It was the material that lacked.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Blind Watchmaker?

    I would cut this thing down to the bone. Assume your audience has a brain and get the point already.
