    Where does DNA come from? What is consciousness? How did the eye evolve? Drawing on a treasure trove of new scientific knowledge, Nick Lane expertly reconstructs evolution's history by describing its 10 greatest inventions - from sex and warmth to death - resulting in a stunning account of nature's ingenuity.

    Joshua says: "Great and informative but with prior knowledge"
    "A bit dense in places, but utterly fascinating"

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    Nick Lane offers a brilliant synopsis of the inner workings of evolution. Yes, there are irritants: He often leads you down dead end streets in discussing historical theories in some detail, only to reveal at the end that the theory you were trying to absorb is utterly wrong. And I had to pick up a hard copy of the book to read over a few passages that I could not follow easily in the audio. But the content and overall presentation is breathtaking.
