Can't seem to get enough of Robert Hazen's courses, so I listened to this great topic a second time, learning more this time around about the origins of life. I'm impressed he remains so enthusiastic about his own beliefs, but presents competitive theories in a very unbiased way. Well worth my time.

I have an intense interest in the subject matter.
This is the best book on the subject I have "read" so far.
This is a comprehensive overview of the proposed theories in the search for the plausible scenarios for the origins of life. Dr. Hazen brings the subject to life (pun intended) by not only talking about the science, but also the personalities, the politics and the process of scientific exploration.
This book is a worthwhile read for scientists,but is still very accessible to the lay person as well.

Would you consider the audio edition of Origins of Life to be better than the print version?
Yet another gem of a lecture course from Robert Hazen. A mind expanding tour de force.

Any additional comments?
First rate presentation of exciting material!

I have a lay interest in abiogenesis and Robert Hazen has worked in this field for a long while and is a recognised expert in this field.
It is not overly challenging and skips along at a good pace.
It's a good place for anyone interested in the origins of life to start.
What a wonderful series. Quite inspiring. I would love to be starting out as a young scientist chipping away at such a wonderful subject as the origin of life. A supernatural creator isn't even mentioned in this course which is as it should be. Thankyou for a brilliant 12 hrs of listening.
