    DescriptionFew lives of great men offer so much interest - and so many mysteries - as the life of Charles Darwin, the greatest figure of nineteenth-century science, whose ideas are still inspiring discoveries and controversies more than 100 years after his death. Yet, only with the publication of Voyaging, the first volume of this acclaimed biography, do we have a truly vivid and comprehensive picture of Darwin as a man and a scientist. The second and final volume of Janet Browne's biography of Darwin - The Power of Place - is also available from Pimlico.

    Review quote
    "Brilliantly penetrating...utterly riveting" Daily Telegraph "Browne knows how to spellbind the reader... The definitive Darwin biography" -- Ernst Mayr New York Newsday "An authoritative and highly readable biography which uncovers the complex process of scientific discovery" Independent "It is wonderful and marvellous, even magisterial" -- Stephen Jay Gould New York Review of Books "Splendid. Her qualifications as a trained biologist, historian of science and skilled editor of the correspondence out her in an ideal position... A wonderful read" Nature
