Charles Darwin: And the Evolution Revolution by Rebecca Stefoff was an interesting biography about Charles Darwin that told of his life from his childhood to his death and beyond. I learned a lot about Darwin and his ideas about evolution. I would reccomend this book to a friend who might want to learn more about Darwin.
