Summary
In September 1838, a young Englishman named Charles Darwin hit upon the idea that natural selection among competing individuals would lead to wondrous adaptations and species diversity. Twenty-one years passed between that epiphany and publication of On the Origin of Species. The human drama and scientific basis of that time constitute a fascinating, tangled tale that illuminates this cautious naturalist who sparked an intellectual revolution. Drawing from Darwin's secret notebooks and personal letters, David Quammen has sketched a vivid life portrait of the man whose work remains controversial today.

Incredibly engaging and intimate account of Darwin and his journey. It confirmed some of my speculations about Darwin, but more than anything it taught me that he was a human before a scientific revolutionary thinker. This illuminated sides of Darwin I never considered. The last few chapters were some of my favorite and highlight just how talented this author is.
