--Wall Street Journal

"Excellent and courageous."
--Michael Flannery, author of Alfred Russel Wallace

"This little sketch reminds us why Darwin's theory of natural selection endures and continues to provoke controversy."
--Publishers Weekly

"This is a first-rate biography, one that brings Darwin and his ideas into brilliant focus."
--History Book Club

"Characteristically pithy and incisive, the ever-popular Johnson offers a Darwin who will be much in demand."
--Booklist
