A very short introduction.
This useful little book concentrates less on Darwin’s life-story, and more on an explanation of his work, and its implications.
After a very brief biography of our hero, topics covered include: Natural Selection; sex, variation, and heredity; human evolution; the concepts of perfection and progress; and an assessment of Darwin the scientist.
Jonathan Howard’s language is clear and unfussy, and the book is an enjoyable and informative read.
