A short, very readable biography of Charles Darwin.

Charles DarwinThere are literally dozens of Darwin biographies available. This one is a nice introduction for anyone wanting to read up on Darwin without going into too much depth. It covers the key events in his life fairly comprehensively but succinctly.

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
