Richard Dawkins reads his abridgement of Darwin's great evolutionary work. Richard Dawkins, author of 'The God delusion' and a life-long committed Darwinist, abridges and reads this special audio version of Charles Darwin's famous book. A literally world-changing book, Darwin put forward the anti-religious and scientific idea that humans in fact evolved over millions of generations from animals, starting with fish, all the way up through the ranks to apes, then to our current form. Dawkin's passion for his subject and hero are clear and exciting for a listener, who, whatever their religious or scientific views, will be intrigued and captivated by this involving production of arguably one of the most important books of all time.
