About the Author
Naturalist Charles Darwin (1809-1882) is the father of evolution. His groundbreaking The Origin of Species argued that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors, and proposed the scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection. As much as anyone in the modern era, Darwin has changed the course of human thought.

Though very knowledgeable about the sciences, I knew very little or nothing about Darwin. That completely changed with the reading of this strategically compiled work. Appleman brilliantly selects apposite portions of Darwin's original texts, texts that served as influences upon Darwin, and excerpts from many of the major, relevant Darwinian authors of the twetniteth century. The flow and structure of this book is incredible, moving almost seamlessly from one authors work to the next; there really is a forged continuity, which eliminates the aspect of distraction that can be found in other anthologies.
Appleman does a particular kind of justice to Darwin, which too often gets ignored, namely, the literary contribution made by Darwin, as well as a look at Darwin's literary interests. This makes Appleman the right scholar for this compilation.
On top of this, I feel that Appleman provides the necessary philosophical excerpts, especially on ethics. Appleman is able to achieve this, without making the volume awkward by having a conceptual and historical development, as the book proceeds. I guarantee that, if you are a neophyte to Darwin's work or someone who wants to get a potent taste, without reading more than one book, Appleman's collection is the ticket.
