A thought-provoking biography of the man behind evolutionary theory.

Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species, his revolutionary tract on evolution and the fundamental ideas involved, in 1859. One hundred and fifty years later, the theory of evolution continues to cause tension between scientific and religious communities. But did you know this debate raged within Darwin himself? Learn about the man behind the theory in an exploration of history, science, and religion.

First off, the narrator of this audiobook was very listen-able. Second, I had no idea who the man behind the Darwin theories was. His flexible parenting style, devoted and loving spouse, and his terrible health issues. Fascinating.
