Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Author, poet, and historian Whitfield (Landmarks in Western Science) celebrates the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth with this marvelous "nutshell" summary of the English naturalist's life and his important contributions to science, reminding listeners of Darwin's continued impact. The author himself narrates, his distinctly British reading conveying Darwin's own British culture and his well-paced delivery helping to sustain interest. This title, one of many future "nutshell" works from this publisher to cover various other fields of study in a similarly cogent, succinct manner, serves as a useful introduction to Darwin's life and work and nicely bookends the more comprehensive approach to audio learning offered by The Teaching Company and Recorded Books' "Modern Scholar" series. Highly recommended. [Audio clip available through www.naxosaudiobooks.com.—Ed.]—Dale Farris, Groves, TX
