    The Greatest Show on Earth is a stunning counterattack on advocates of "Intelligent Design," explaining the evidence for evolution while exposing the absurdities of the creationist "argument". Dawkins sifts through rich layers of scientific evidence: from living examples of natural selection to clues in the fossil record; from natural clocks that mark the vast epochs wherein evolution ran its course to the intricacies of developing embryos; from plate tectonics to molecular genetics.

    Joseph says: "Well read, well explained, scientific."
    "Not for casual listening..."
    Overall

    Very interesting read, and keeps your attention by switching between Dawkins and Ward. You do really have to focus on the subject matter, which is a bit in depth, or you will find yourself hitting the back button often. Now only if he would do "The Selfish Gene" on tape...

  • The Age of Entanglement: When Quantum Physics was Reborn

    A brilliantly original and richly illuminating exploration of entanglement, the seemingly telepathic communication between two separated particles - one of the fundamental concepts of quantum physics.

    Mark says: "A nice mix of theory and history."
    "Very monotone"
    Overall

    My first impression was that this was going to be a very difficult book to listen to due to the narrators lack of inflection. It does start to pick up story wise about half way through the book (1938 for those that have listened), but it will take a good deal of discipline and stamina to get there.
