Even though it costs £50 you should read this review of the new Teilhard translation:

"When first published, Teilhard de Chardin's seminal work attracted worldwide attention and immediately became a bestseller, but few realized then how many mistakes the first translation contained. Sarah Appleton-Weber has done us a great service by providing a much more exact, more coherent and more poetic text based on many years of meticulous research. This fresh translation invites readers to enter and share Teilhard's powerful vision of science and religion, of the direction and meaning of life." Professor Ursula King, University of Bristol, author of Spirit of Fire: The Life and Vision of Teilhard de Chardin
