    Edward O. Wilson is one of the world’s preeminent biologists, a Pulitzer Prize winner, and the author of more than 25 books. The defining work in a remarkable career, The Social Conquest of Earth boldly addresses age-old questions (Where did we come from? What are we? Where are we going?) while delving into the biological sources of morality, religion, and the creative arts.

    Gary says: "Wow, Wilson has a lot to say and boy can he write."
    "Superb performance"

    What made the experience of listening to The Social Conquest of Earth the most enjoyable?

    Just wanted to comment on the reader. Even though I thought the reading of the text was a bit annoying at the beginning, I have come to love the way the book is read. Excellent performance.

    Story
    (21)

    In John Updike's fourth and final novel about ex-basketball player Harry "Rabbit" Angstrom, the hero has acquired heart trouble, a Florida condo, and a second grandchild. His son, Nelson, is behaving erratically; his daughter-in-law, Pru, is sending out mixed signals; and his wife, Janice, decides in mid-life to become a working girl. As, though the winter, spring, and summer of 1989, Reagan's debt-ridden, AIDS-plagued America yields to that of George Bush, Rabbit explores the bleak terrain of late middle age.

    Kathryn G Goodman says: "classic rabbit"

    Story
    Would you listen to Rabbit at Rest again? Why?

    Beautifully written. Every paragraph is written from heart with a gem hidden in a sentence or two. Have finished reading/listening to the four Rabbit books and listening to Rabbit Remembered now thinking these books are certainly among the best of American writings.


    What does Arthur Morey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The reader makes the whole experience even more pleasurable. Could not have been performed better. Warm and beautiful voice with deliberate, exact and faithful reading of the text. Wonderful.
