Penguin Books Limited, Oct 29, 1992 - Biography & Autobiography - 808 pages
This biography of Charles Darwin attempts to capture the private unknown life of the real man - the gambling and gluttony at Cambridge, his gruelling trip round the globe, his intimate family life, worries about persecution and thoughts about God. Central to all of this, his pioneering efforts on the theory of evolution now that recent studies have overturned the commonplace views of Darwin that have held for more than a century.

I did not think I would enjoy this book as much as I did, it was amazing and a VERY extensive with a great deal of history of the socio-economic and political strife in England at the time. Totally recommend it to anyone I know. Read full review
