I found this book a fascinating journey into the lives of people and living organisms with such incredible detail that one would have to read it two or three times to fully appreciate his mindset.

This work is a masterpiece and one of the most influential books in the history of humanity. It is very clearly written too but it's not recommended for those who do not have a special interest in the matter of human evolution or sexual selection. The kindle edition leaves a bit to be desired. In particular, there is no table of contents or any way to navigate a long volume which is used mainly for reference. I was interested in re-reading the section on birds dimorphism and had to skip the pages one by one to the desired location.

A book originally issued with well over 600 pages condensed to a mere 137 pages. There is nothing more to say about this particular pressing.

I have wanted to read this for some time. It is a stunning intellectual achievement given that it is over 150 years old. It is, however, pretty dated. Darwin was a man of his time, and some of what he writes will strike the modern reader as being very politically incorrect. Still, it is worth reading for its historical value. And the flaws in it do not detract from its historical importance, or the power of his insight, which I think is one of the great ideas a human ever had. There is much in it to learn from.

I read this book as a follow up to Origin of Species. Which was published about a decade before. Anybody who would like to argue ( or listen to arguments ) about evolution should invest in both these books-after all the're free! You may find that don't really believe in Darwin's theories, at least not all of them. For example, are you willing to accept as scientific fact that European men are more intelligent than women, Africans, or American aborigines?. Read part three of Decent.

I believe that this book is highly informative and ground breaking for its time. It therefore gives an historical perspective which is not as easily comprehensible in present time.

This book did not meet my expectations. This is not a complete version of the book written by Darwin. I needed this for a seminar, and clearly it has been useless. In no place there was a warning about this being an incomplete version of the book. This version does not do justice to Darwin's original book.

This book is a work of genius by Charles Darwin and an important factor in understanding Evolution. If you’re fascinated by Evolution than this is the book to read!

This book, published in 1871 is still, like its predecessor "Origin of Species," a clear and well reasoned presentation of the biological evidence for evolution, in this case the evolution of human beings. Darwin's command of the evidence and his clear reasoning are pleasures to read even 142 years later.

Great expose on how we came about. I enjoyed reading it. It gives scientific explanation of what Charles Darwin said ...may be many of us do not agree with but there may not be any authentic explanation of how we came about to be on this mother earth.
