Hello again everyone,
For those of you that were interested or recently started The Greatest Show on Earth, by Richard Dawkins, I figured we would start a discussion on it. Any one that wants to join in and start the read is more than welcome, as well as those who have already read it. (I'm sure Nelson will have some insight for us!)
Let me know what you think! Thanks everyone!
I'm sorry if this is double-posting. It's a bit confusing learning to "reply". Anyway, looking for to reading about the "show" (read scam).
If you enjoyed The God Delusion reading, then I'm sure you will enjoy this one (I listened to the former on a roadtrip with friends). Keep in mind there's an abridged version on the site, too. I also noticed whilst looking on audible that he and his wife just released a reading of The Selfish Gene, the first book of his that I read, a thoroughly fascinating read, and I would guess would be the hardest to follow (out of the three) in audio form without having the text in front of you, as though I find his prose quite lucid, he's essentially presenting a theory of his own in Gene.
So yeah, I would say that this one would be a good choice to listen to, as I think I'd rather have Selfish Gene as something on my shelf to dive back into for reference, as I see that as a more erudite text, and TGSoE as a sorely needed pop sci enlightener.
