    "Not a natural transition to audio"

    This book contains many excellent responses to common objections to Intelligent Design, and is an must have reference for the subject.

    Unfortunately, it is not really meant to be read (or listened to) from beginning to end. Questions are answered in sequence, as individual responses. The author does not assume the reader has read the book from the beginning to that point, so he repeats himself often.

    So my suggestion would be to buy the printed version -- unless you don't mind highly repetitive narration of very strong arguments.

    Story
    "Profound and didactic, but worth the effort"

    The author makes some excellent points as he goes through the arguments for Intelligent Design. It seems like he is making the same point from about 20 different directions, so you may find yourself wondering if he will ever be finished. My feeling is that he realized that the reader/listener would need a lot of repetition to get these concepts into our thick skulls. For those who really want to have an understanding of ID, this is a great book, but it is not for anyone who just wants a general discussion of the subject. If you like to listen to the audiobook, you will probably want to buy the paper copy so you can write in it and dogear the pages.

    "Honest defeat of Darwin"
    Where does Design Revolution rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best books I have either read or listened to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    What I liked best about the book is the use of concrete data, inarguable numbers and credible hypotheticals.


    Have you listened to any of Grover Gardner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narration was a bit


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A tagline for a film version of this book would be:


    Any additional comments?

    I cannot begin to understand the mind which cannot assent to the plain factual, logical argumentation in this book. I think someone with such an inability should seek psychiatric help, with psychotropic medication and, perhaps, some sort of logic puzzle or game therapy as part of a complete program of restoration of reasoning faculties.

    It is finally time to insist that Evolution be replaced with Intelligent Design through Specified Complexity in our public schools. The pedagogical reign of unfounded dogmatism is now over.

    "There is nothing intelligent in this book."

    First of all, five stars to excellent narration! Grover Gardner excels as usual.

    But MINUS five stars for the author!!!

    After reading disturbingly brilliant "Why Evolution Is True", I thought it would be interesting to read what opponents have to counter with inner hope that it may be something brilliant and reassuring. I yearned to find flaws in evolution theory. Unfortunately, I did not find anything intelligent in this book. First of all, author is hypocrite, he lies! Does he think that I am so stupid to believe that intelligent design has nothing to do with Christianity and that it is not produced to replace utterly discredited creationism??? The author is demagogue who pretends to have scientific approach. It may be convincing to gullible audience who want to believe no matter what. But there is serious reason why all serious scientists shun this "revolution". Of note, I checked his "highly acclaimed" and brilliant Society for Complexity, Information and Design is closed! His explanations why he cannot have peer review publications is simply laughable.
