Synopses & Reviews
Darwin's masterpieces read by his greatest living proponent, the author of The God Delusion This box set includes CSA Word's two previous releases of Darwin's major works, along with a bonus CD containing an original essay by Richard Dawkins, "Darwin's Five Bridges: The Way to Natural Selection." On The Origin of Species was Darwin's seminal work, outlining his theory of natural selection. Groundbreaking at the time, it arguably remains one of the most influential scientific works ever written. The Voyage of the Beagle, documenting Darwins travels as a young man researching natural history, foreshadows his later work, both in its probing approach to the natural world and in the entertaining, witty, even lyrical writing. Both titles edited by Richard Dawkins.
"One of the most arresting narrations of non-fiction I have heard." —Times
