it was amazing

Great book! Fascinating! Charles Darwin was a brilliant and dedicated scientist. the book provides insights into the close network of scientists working alongside Darwin in England and how prolific Darwin was and how hard he worked. Yet, he had close friends and corresponded daily with colleagues all over the world. I had always wondered just how a scientist produces a monumental work like Origin of Species. After reading this book I understand that it was years of dedicated work and collaboration. And, though it all, you see that Darwin is still human...a husband and father, local citizen and friend.
