A Brief Guide to Charles Darwin

A Brief Guide to Charles Darwin

Charles Darwin has become one of the most important men in history. The quiet, unsure polymath who avoided confrontation, ensconced in his family home at Down House in Kent, was also a revolutionary who developed his idea of Natural Selection in isolation. Cyril Aydon’s short biography is considered one of the best introductions to the life and ideas of Darwin.

With Darwin’s legacy still in contention and the forthcoming anniversary of the publication of The Origins Species, Aydon’s book is a perfect guide to the ideas as well as the man who was recently voted one of the greatest Britons of all time, and certainly one of the most influential thinkers ever.
