    Engaging in that it shows a brilliant mind at work. This is pathbreaking science expressed by a great communicator, and Darwin’s prose is economical, effective, at times even beautiful. That said, despite having no complaints with the audio presentation, I would not recommend Origin Of Species in audio form. The book remains precise, rigorous science – not polemical entertainment on creation vs. evolution. For example, listeners seeking a debate on the descent of man from apes will find none of that here. Since it requires attentive study, Origin Of Species probably is better suited for paper than audio.
