The third installment in the Science of Discworld series continues the tradition of mixing Terry Pratchetts excellent humorous fantasy fiction with popular science. While not as good as the first book, Darwin's Watch is much better than the "The Globe", the second installment. Darwin's Watch just seems to be more focused; namely on the theme of evolution in general and Darwin's theories in particular. It also manages to fit in some fun notes on the nature of infinity, time travel, and the concept of alternate dimensions among other things. Ultimately a great read if you are a Discworld fan with an interrest in science. You do really need to have a minimum of interrest in both subjects to get the most out of the book though.
