  • The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution

    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."

    Overall

    This should be required reading for every biology 101 class. Or make that Chemistry. And geology. It comes at evolution from so many angles, makes it understandable and very interesting. Want to understand carbon dating? Embryology? I just wish it was longer. I kept thinking, "I wish Darwin could hear what we know now." Verification everywhere. So many ways evolution could be disproven, yet it keeps on winning. If you have a friend who is somehow stuck against evolution, insist that he read this book. If not the best audiobook I ever heard, it is in the top 3. Bravo!

    If Apple is Silicon Valley's answer to Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory, then author Adam Lashinsky provides listeners with a golden ticket to step inside. This primer on leadership and innovation, offers exclusive new information about how Apple innovates. It should appeal to anyone hoping to bring some of that Apple magic to their own company, career, or creative endeavor.

    What did you like best about Inside Apple? What did you like least?

    I don't trust what he says because he makes claims that I know are untrue. For example, he poo poos Apple's claims of theft by android by claiming Jobs stole from Xerox Parc. Jobs paid to see Xerox's technology, and he used it to make wonderful products that Xerox would never have made. Lanshinsky says the


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Midnight's Children


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Would a Trekkie go to the next Star Trek movie?

    From the larger, louder half of the world-famous magic duo Penn & Teller comes a scathingly funny reinterpretation of The Ten Commandments. They are The Penn Commandments, and they reveal one outrageous and opinionated atheist’s experience in the world.

    Would you consider the audio edition of God, No! to be better than the print version?

    I cannot imagine just reading this book. You must listen. Penn is so F&@ci$ funny.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favourite character is the kid who suspects his parents are the tooth fairy.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The hair dryer scene had me laughing so hard, I had to stop the book and pull my car over to the side of the road.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There is no dead spot. DAMN, this book is funny.
