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.

“…wonderful. Science and history and geography and evolution and culture all tangled up in musings while walking about the moors around Hebden Bridge.”—PZ Myers
