In The Ancestor's Tale, evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins offers a masterwork: an exhilarating reverse tour through evolution, from present-day humans back to the microbial beginnings of life four billion years ago. Throughout the journey, Dawkins spins entertaining, insightful stories and sheds light on topics such as speciation, sexual selection, and extinction. The Ancestor's Tale is at once an essential education in evolutionary theory and riveting in its telling.More

Good book, poorly abridged for audio
- J. Colombe
I didn't understand that I was buying the abridged version of The Ancestor's Tale. I don't remember seeing that stated so clearly as it is here. I enjoyed what I did hear of the book, but realized, after referring to the print copy, that the Audible version is heavily abridged.
Yes, the book was a pleasure.
They have lovely reading voices.
Would love to have the full unabridged version available from Audible.
