The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution - Richard Dawkins (Audiobook + E-book)

Charles Darwin's masterpiece, "On the Origin of Species", shook society to its core on publication in 1859. Darwin was only too aware of the storm his theory of evolution would provoke but he would surely have raised an incredulous eyebrow at the controversy still raging a century and a half later. Evolution is accepted as scientific fact by all reputable scientists and indeed theologians, yet millions of people continue to question its veracity. In "The Greatest Show on Earth", Richard Dawkins takes on creationists, including followers of 'Intelligent Design' and all those who question the fact of evolution through natural selection. Like a detective arriving on the scene of a crime, he sifts through fascinating layers of scientific facts and disciplines to build a cast-iron case: from the living examples of natural selection in birds and insects; the 'time clocks' of trees and radioactive dating that calibrate a timescale for evolution; the fossil record and the traces of our earliest ancestors; to confirmation from molecular biology and genetics. All of this, and much more, bears witness to the truth of evolution. "The Greatest Show on Earth" comes at a critical time: systematic opposition to the fact of evolution is now flourishing as never before, especially in America. In Britain and elsewhere in the world, teachers witness insidious attempts to undermine the status of science in their classrooms. Richard Dawkins provides unequivocal evidence that boldly and comprehensively rebuts such nonsense. At the same time he shares with us his palpable love of the natural world and the essential role that science plays in its interpretation. Written with elegance, wit and passion, it is hard-hitting, absorbing and totally convincing. richarddawkins.net

Awesome, thanks! I have also pre-ordered the book and it should arrive next week.
Psybermonkey - did you try Amazon? You can usually view the first few pages online, including the table of content.

thanks! since we couldn't get this until next week...from this side of the pond (the more religious one =-)~~

btw, why is this 'abridged'? did you post samples (not the whole cd content)? from checking amazon.com, it's read by mr.&mrs. dawkins unabridged, word-by-word from the book, i'd assume

thanks anyway! it's lovely to hear his voice again~~

I have an error on Chapter 15. Should I download again?

John said...

I was so excited when I saw this! Thank you! I'm about half of the way through and it's excellent.
Even abridged it does a good job of not being too brief. Under 8 hours but underscores crucial scientific points and manages to explain them well. Recommended!

FYI, Fileserve has deleted all three files.

I would be very grateful if they could be reuploaded.

Due to the USA SOPA and PIPA bills many file hosters have deleted all files. MegaUpload, FileJungle, Fileserve, Filesonic and I'd guess more will follow because of the might of the U S of A trying to control the internet.

100 internets if you reupload the Unabridged version to RS?

You should never use rapidshare for public links.
rather you should prefer providers like ul.to or rapidgator
