7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By John Rucklidge on September 19, 2004
Format: Paperback
Everybody knows about Darwin's Theory of Evolution, but how many have read the book which unleashed it? Let me tell you. Not many, because it is such a daunting read, written as it is in difficult-to-assimilate Victorian English, and rather long to boot. Dr. Sheldon's version keeps Darwin's original chapters, so all the topics are covered. Except where a modern reader might be confused, he preserves Darwin's immaculately composed text, but he selects only those examples which are neccessary to convey Darwin's ideas. Darwin went overboard with his examples; Sheldon has kept them within reasonable bounds. After reading this book, with its modest 220 pages, you will have read Darwin in the original, and you will have informed knowledge of "The Origin Of Species, as it was presented in 1859. If only this version had been available when I tried to study biology!
