Just got this via eSkeptic:

Free Audio Download of a Chapter from "Why Darwin Matters", by Michael Shermer.

In the opening chapter of Why Darwin Matters, Michael Shermer recounts his voyage to and research in the Galapagos islands with Frank Sulloway as they retraced Darwin’s footsteps to better understand how the British naturalist discovered natural selection; Shermer then explains what evolution is, and how he began college as a creationist and how, in time, he came to realize that evolutionary theory was true and one of the greatest explanatory theories in the history of science.

Hello! I'm new to AN and pretty much to atheism as well. I'm a children's librarian, so I read A LOT of children's literature. But, I try to sneak an adult book in here and there! I mostly read fiction. Not really picky about the genre, just whatever looks good. I hardly ever read nonfiction, but have recently been reading a lot of it, due to my new-found atheism. In that vein, I really loved Hitchens, Dawkins, Barker, John Allen Paulos, and Victor Stenger. Looking forward to talking books with all of you!

Just finished reading Evolution by Zimmer, it brought all my studies in collage and independently, come together in a very well put together book. Enjoyed it.

Just finished teaching a class on environmental ethics and got the class into a forgotten classic, Accepting the Universe, by John Burroughs. He still used quite a bit of religious language (after all it was 1921) but oh did he turn it upside down! Some of his other "nature" books are also good logs to cross the streams of religion (my Burroughs collection offers a few selections).

Excellent book review, Ken. Thanks for writing and posting that. I will add to my list.

(BTW, I'll put in my plug for, great way to keep track of what you have read, are reading, and plan to read. There are groups as well, and some good atheism discussions)
