Though they address Darwin and the popularly accepted theory of natural selection, the Charlesworths also show an interest in examining the relation of human evolution to the rest of the universe in this enlightening audiobook read by the talented Kevin Young, whose full-bodied voice and inviting tone makes this nearly five-hour audiobook fly by.
This audiobook is about the crucial role of evolutionary biology in transforming our view of human origins and relation to the universe, and the impact of this idea on traditional philosophy and religion. The purpose of this audiobook is to introduce the general listener to some of the most important basic findings, concepts, and procedures of evolutionary biology, as it has developed since the first publications of Darwin and Wallace on the subject, over 140 years ago. Evolution provides a unifying set of principles for the whole of biology; it also illuminates the relation of human beings to the universe and each other. In addition, many aspects of evolution have practical importance; for instance, the rapid evolution of resistance by bacteria to antibiotics and of HIV to antiviral drugs are pressing medical problems.

Where does Evolution: A Very Short Introduction rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This is a very short introduction to evolution. It reviews quite a lot to information. It sticks to the science rather than delving into the controversies.
