Destroyer of MythsBook - 2014
"The narrative looks perceptively at Darwin's early life, at the influences that shaped him during his university years, and at the formative effect of the famous voyage to the Galapagos in the Beagle that led him to question orthodox views on how the world was created and how humans evolved. In particular, it concentrates on the progress, over twenty years, of his thinking on natural selection, which grew into a great work that disturbed and enlightened his contemporaries" --Jacket.
