Even though I have a substantial background in reproductive biology, this book not only strengthened my interest in the subject but provided insight into mysteries I had never even dreamed of. The author is clearly as described by others "...a polymath". What a wonderful contribution to biological sciences. Dr Moalem's book should be a obligatory reading for every student in biological sciences. Dr Moalem also does an excellent job of reading his own book; usually a red flag. A keeper!

Boring as a text book!

This book is highly authoritative with regard to anthropology but unfortunately falls very far short on the entertainment scale. I love history and learning when it is as dry as this, I simply cannot listen further. Despite the content of the book, January LaVoy does a great performance.

An aspect of Herman Wouk you must experience

We know his war novels so well; so too the stories of Israel. this is completely different. A long book, but be patient and you will be rewarded. Nick Sullivan does a MASTERFUL job, simply marvelous.

Richard Wagamese was a true artist, painting Mona Lisas with almost every poignant brushstroke. I will enjoy this book again.

Inspiration for care givers. Every medical, dental, veterinary and allied health practitioner should read this...then re-read it.

Guilt and thought provoking..

This book had me writhing. Oh, how different it might be of we could turn back time and engage life with current sensibilities! How I wished the book could have been shorter but the indictments poured out endlessly...as well they should have. Lorne Cardinal did a great job but better audio editing (removing silent periods) would have improved the final product. Overall however, this book should be compulsory reading for every newcomer to the Americas.

Simply superb

if you have any interest in the history of Israel, read this book and its companion " The hope". I followed most of both books, tracking then for historical accuracy as I listened. I was impressed! Masterly performed by Mark Ashby.

The story and narration are outstanding. As for the five stars being too few; read or listen to the book. You will understand

Barrett Whitener does an EXTRAORDINARY job of narration. That alone makes this a keeper. The story itself is however well paired for the narration. A simply marvelous book. I will listen to it many times over and recommend it far and wide. AMAZING.

The course-like lecture format of this book is dull as ditch water. The TERRIBLE pronunciation of names and placed by the reader adds to the pain of listening to this book.
