I needed the audio CD version to understand the book, because I am a molasses reader and get stuck in the victorian thicket. However my CDs were narrated by Frederick Davidson, and not David Case (even though my CD box says David Case). If you can get the Davidson version, you will realize that Davidson understands the biology while narrating. He waits just long enough between points, and uses inflections in pitch and tone which interpret the complex sentence structure, beautifully expressing the scientific arguments in Davidson's impeccable dry English gentleman's voice. I have read many reviews here which fault David Case for his inability to do exactly what is described above. I bought the CD set anyway and somehow got the Davidson, who I thought was Case.

Complex sentences; complex intellect. Much of what he says still holds.

A disgusting work of Evangelical Christian Propaganda! The "special introduction" gives a decent bio of Darwin for 10 pages - but the first three or so pages are mired in controversy because Ray Comfort plagiarized it! And that's the best part of "his" work. After that it descends into a horrific amalgam of uniformed creationist "evidence" against evolution (or non sequitur criticism against Darwin personally) that has been thoroughly debunked and/or dismissed by factual evidence for 10-40 years. And there are 40 pages of it! It concludes with a long, ignorant diatribe about the superiority and correctness of Evangelical Christianity and even asks you to pray the sinner's prayer. Only a professional tract writer could pull something like this off.

Beyond that, Darwin's text is abridged (four chapters missing) without being advertised as such! Though Comfort has said the four omitted chapters were "randomly" selected, how is it that the ommited chapters present a large part of the evidence for Darwin's line of argumentation? This is especially odd considering the book was opened with 40 pages of slipshod reasoning AGAINST Darwin's argumentation. The plagiarism is simply the icing the on the cake.

Dishonest garbage.
