    "Excellent!"

    This is quintessential Dawkins. It is an extremely entertaining and fun listen. Well worth the few bucks.
    The audio quality itself is satisfactory.

    "I was there"

    I was fortunate enough to hear this lecture live. Richard Dawkins is one of the most incisive and articulate scientists in our culture, and it was a pleasure to hear him ruminate about Darwinism, medical ethics, and a host of other topics. Strongly recommended.

    "5 stars indeed"

    I think this is one of my favorite downloads, and I like replaying it for friends. It's a good conversation started.
