A superb biography. Unsurpassed.

Both volumes are superb. Unsurpassed. Browne's only bump in the road was her psychoanalyzing Darwin's health. (Crohn's disease?) While it doesn't take away from his expertise and accomplishments, one wonders his impact had he not had his father's monetary backing and inheritance. Political correctness was in play back then as Darwin had to carefully shield his growing atheism. Indeed, he believed truly reasonable and rational men were not believers. Inherit the Wind, indeed.
