This enjoyable book on the life of Charles Darwin is well worth reading. It's very informative and covers all aspects of his life and work in a way that is easy to understand without having to reread every sentence twice. It tells of how Darwin pieced together the mystery of Natural Selection and the people who influenced him to do so. In the margins are facts about those people and things that happened during Darwin’s lifetime, but they are not so frequent as to disrupt the story.
Charles Darwin and the Mystery of Mysteries is a must read book!
