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 Darwin's 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 ever heard...the great naturalist's arguments come over with lucidity and charm. The Times * Dawkins reads engagingly and the whole effect is like David Attenborough without the pictures. The Sunday Times * A choppy adventure story. Time Out on The Voyage of the Beagle
