Scientist Charles Darwin once asserted that ""a scientific man ought to have no wishes, no affections -- a mere heart of stone."" Indeed, his objective take on evolution asserted in The Origin of Species shook the foundations of traditional religion to its core. Did Darwin Get It Right? is a concise, readable guide for non-scientists interested in sorting out fact from fiction in this complex and compelling debate.

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. “Darwin was wrong” are the opening words of A.N. Wilson’s new biography, Charles Darwin: Victorian Mythmaker. I enjoyed the book, and I learned a lot from it. Wilson’s knowledge of the Victorian era is encyclopedic, and he was able to fill the book with fascinating details about Darwin and his .

  And in Darwin published a classic book under its original title, "Journal of Researches." The book was later republished as "The Voyage of the Beagle," and remains in print to this day. The book is a lively and charming account of Darwin’s travels, written with intelligence and occasional flashes of humor.   Did Darwin Get it Right? by George Sim Johnston, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.3/5(3).
