        A great book both for its autobiographical voice (Darwin is surprisingly funny, especially when he describes his young life) and for the lovely extras Barlow, a descendent, has added. My personal favorite part, and one of the funniest, is the letter written by Darwin's uncle in his behalf to convince Darwin's father that letting him go on the /5(5).   A book about the question at the heart of Darwin’s marriage to Emma Wedgwood; and a picture-book introduction to Darwin and his dangerous ideas.

      Book 4 contains three full years of awful antics, with ten science essays and the complete history of the Darwin Awards. Especial thanks to my volunteer Moderators, guest Writer, five scientists for their Essays, and our inspired Artist! "Which book should I buy?" Book 4 is the latest! Book 1 has all the CLASSICS (my favorite). His five years travelling the world on board the naval sailing ship, H.M.S. Beagle, were the most formative of Charles Darwin’s life, and it was a book that began der von Humboldt’s Personal Narrative, a seven-volume account of his journey to South America in the opening years of the nineteenth century, caught Darwin’s imagination so strongly that he couldn’t wait to travel.

      Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution now forms the basis for all the life sciences, but it ignited widespread controversy upon its publication. The idea that humans and animals might have evolved from a common source came as a shock to readers at the time. Follow the links to resources about the books and papers, mostly scientific, that Darwin read as student at Edinburgh, during the Beagle voyage, and later in his life. Darwin and his family also read works of fiction by Anthony Trollope, George Eliot, and Jane Austen, among others.
