Would you listen to The Evolution of Everything again? Why?
Yes, I am in the process of listening and reading it a second time now. At the age of 79, I sometimes fall asleep while listening so I miss some parts. Not that Ridley's book is boring, but that I might need a nap even in the middle of a terrorist attack -- or something.
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
Having taught evolutionary ecology at the graduate level, Ridley's expansion of the idea of evolution to "everything" -- including morality, religion, goverment, etc. is a fascinating, testable hypothesis worthy of further study. It will drive incipient and active tyrants into a frenzy.
Have you listened to any of Steven Crossley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No. The "English" accent was sometimes difficult to hear, but otherwise well-done.
If you could give The Evolution of Everything a new subtitle, what would it be?
Why "Creationism" is Irrational
Any additional comments?
Many thanks for a job well-done.

Some may find this material a bit long and dry because the it requires you to really listen and think deeply to get the most out it. Some people don't want to have to think, but if you do make the effort, you will find yourself rewarded and become very informed and enlightened for your effort.
The range if topics covered is broad so as soon as I finish this review, I will be listening to it a second time to be sure I didn't miss any important points. Though not required, you may find it useful to get another book by this author "The Rational Optimist" which has different but complimentary information that helps build a fuller picture of the author's ideas.
