    Richard Dawkins, author of The God Delusion and a life-long committed Darwinist, abridges and reads this special audio version of Charles Darwin's famous book. A literally world-changing book, Darwin put forward the anti-religious and scientific idea that humans in fact evolved over millions of generations from animals, starting with fish, all the way up through the ranks to apes, then to our current form.

    M says: "A Perfect Abridgement"
    "Superbly abridged and superbly read"
    Overall

    I have attempted to read the original several times. For practical reasons (I have young children) I just never could get through.

    This abridgement serves my needs ideally; I did not want to miss any of the salient arguments or data to support them, and I wanted to be sure to understand __in Darwin's words__ what he proposed so that I could better appreciate contemporary refinements.

    Superbly narrated by Richard Dawkins. A great joy in every way.
