Editor reviews

Dave Ferguson's animated narration of Evolution makes this a captivating audio experience. The listener feels smarter just by listening! Burton Guttman's information is thorough and his aim is clear: He wants the listener to use this "beginner's guide" as a gateway into the vast world of evolution scholarship. The audio provides key information for understanding the history and influence of evolution theory, genetics, and animal behavior. It is an invaluable guide for those who have not previously studied the subject, and a refreshing reminder for those who have.

Summary

Covering everything from fossilised dinosaurs to intelligent apes, this is an accessible guide to one of the most important scientific theories of all time. Burt Guttman assumes no prior scientific knowledge on the part of the listener, and explains each of the key ideas and concepts, including natural selection, genetics, and the evolution of animal behaviour, in a lively and informative way.

Looking ahead to the future of evolutionary theory, and assessing its possible implications for the way we understand morality, human nature, and our place in the world, this audiobook provides the perfect starting point for understanding what evolution is and why it matters.
