Darwin's Notebook is a biography of the great man, but a biography with a difference. As you would expect, it provides a full and detailed account of Darwin's life and discoveries, but it is written, designed and illustrated to look like, as the title suggests, a personal notebook or journal.

By mining the rich sources of his own journals and incorporating a wide range of quotations and primary sources, Darwin's Notebook brings its subject to life more vividly than any ordinary history book or biography, revealing the man behind the theory of evolution. Additional chapters examine Darwin's early life and education, his family life, his later writings, the reactions to his work and his long-term legacy.

Never having ploughed through 'The Origin of the Species' this beautifully compiled edition with sketches and illustrations is a delightful way of learning more about the genius. -- Janet Suzman
