Reviews
"The prolific novelist and biographer probes the character and controversies of Charles Darwin's life and the controversial theory that turned the world on its head.... An illuminating new biography of a legendary figure in the scientific world whose legacy continues to draw reappraisals."--Kirkus
"Though Darwin's all-encompassing theory is now widely regarded as paradigmatic science, Wilson provocatively considers it a quasi-religious credo--like Marx and Engels' The Communist Manifesto--ultimately doing more to shape political attitudes than to advance scientific understanding.... Sure to spark debate."--Booklist (starred review)
