Reviews

Reveals the man of his time as well as the scientific thinker far ahead of it. --Publishers Weekly

[A]n absorbing book. From the primroses and hot house at Down House, [Boulter] leads us on a voyage not only around Darwin's thought, but that of his contemporaries and modern biology. --Sunday Telegraph (London)

An engaging and fascinating tour through the life and the work of Darwin--and what Darwin's legacy means for our view of the world. --Professor Sir Peter Crane, Former Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

The ideas explored are thought-provoking, and there can be no doubt that the garden at Down had an extremely important role in Darwin's work. --Nature (International Weekly Journal of Science)
