Sorryyy
This book is not exactly as the title claims 'Darwin for Beginners'. A more appropriate title would be 'Darwin for Beginners who are frustrated with reading other complicated books, but managed to get crude understanding of evolution from it.' Whew! I know, long title. But that is the truth.

This well illustrated book does not approached the theory of evolution directly, but instead presents the idea from the point of view of people (biologists) proposing and discussing plausible explanations for the variation in life - explanations which sometimes reinforced and sometimes conflicted with one another. To put it another way, it explains how the idea of evolution had evolved and was accepted among the scientific community.

In a very simple and easy to understand manner it gives us a window into the thinking of scientists of that time.

This book has a unique way of telling the story of Charles Darwin through a sort of cartoon strip. This is a great introduction to the story of Charles Darwin and the theory of evolution. I would highly recommend this for anyone interested in the theory of evolution and the history behind it. This book would be a great introduction for children or those wanting to know more about this topic.

A great book overall. I cannot think of a better intro to Darwin and the Darwinian Revolution than this. From its funny pictures and stories, to its unusually informative content, I'd say that this book couldn't have been better made.

Amazing

Real cheap, childish attempt. Should be ashamed to have on amazon. Total waste of money. Shame on me.
Skillet
Great service and the item was in the condition they stated when purchasing online. Great seller.

Religion had provided answers that guided English social behavior for so long That Darwin preferred seclusion after publishing his general theory of evolution before he took an approach on man being an animal with a long history of gradual changes that made sexual selection such a game of who do you think you are talking to ??? Knowing what kind of punction is expected in science makes !!! people uneasy about passionate born with a brain ego boundaries in a world that seems to be run by such idiots that most people are entertained by those who are equally bad. Coral and barnacles are like death and hate in a full natural history of the way society thinks it advances.
This is a great lightweight book on Darwin's life and the development of the idea of evolution. Though it would be a shame to stop an exploration of natural selection here, it's a great starting point because it provides the context in which Darwin's thoughts came to be. It also discusses objections and criticisms of natural selection, how it has been misunderstood and abused, and how Darwin himself treated problematic aspects of the theory. I don't know that the illustrations and such are very revealing or useful, but they definitely make the book easy and fun to read, though the last few pages become more text-based. Overall, it's a well executed introduction to a very influential and oft misinterpreted person. But though this book is for beginners, please don't stay one... go and read "Origin of Species."
