Brought to you by Penguin.
Including conversations with Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Steven Pinker, Matt Ridley and more, this is an essential guide to the most exciting ideas of our time and their proponents from our most brilliant science communicator. This audio edition also includes Richard Dawkins in conversation with Christopher Hitchens, in what was to be Christopher Hitchens’s last interview before his death in 2011.
Books Do Furnish a Life is divided by theme, including celebrating nature, exploring humanity and interrogating faith. For the first time, it brings together Richard Dawkins's forewords, afterwords and introductions to the work of some of the leading thinkers of our age - Carl Sagan, Lawrence Krauss, Jacob Bronowski, Lewis Wolpert - with a selection of his reviews to provide an electrifying celebration of science writing, both fiction and non-fiction. It is also a sparkling addition to Dawkins's own remarkable canon of work.
"Richard Dawkins is a thunderously gifted science writer." (Sunday Times)

A must have for bright readers
Richard Dawkins is surely one of the greatest scientists of our time. What Einstein was for physics, Dawkins is for life sciences. This book is providing an insight into his way of thinking, his view on the world and of course on science and religion. He develops this view not only in writing but also in discussions with other brilliant minds, all of them top-ranking in their respective field. To follow these discussions is not only a pleasure for your ears but also for your brain. Being entertained and inspired - what more can you expect from an audiobook? Clear recommendation, even if a few episodes may sound familiar to Dawkins fans who already own all his previous books and follow all his public discussions on youtube.
