These compelling recordings of so much of the core symphonic repertoire at little more than a pound apiece are incredible value for money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Seriously disappointing, 30 Mar 2009
Wowed by his "Rise & Fall of Modern Medicine" I had high hopes for le Fanu's latest. Many of the same strengths are evident but his case against Darwinism never stacks up. He implies that there was too little time for macro-evolutioanry change to occur (land mammals to whales, say) but never addresses the relevant evidence for and against punctuated equilibrium. He asserts that our genome is too similar to other animals' and too light on genes to explain our human attributes, but again produces no real evidence for this. He embraces mind-brain dualism without acknowledging that hardly anyone engaged in consciousness studies agrees with him. Darwin's more uncritical disciples do need challenging, but this is not the book to do it.
