    A clear and concise overview of Darwin s scientific endeavors and the incontrovertible relevance of those endeavors to our understanding of life and its processes This is no children s book For example In the description of the isolating mechanisms that inhibit inter species copulation, the authors drop an F bomb in what, I assume, is an attempt at humor Whatever the reasoning, it seemed ill advised and in questionable taste.All missteps aside, the enthusiasm the authors show for Darwin and his accomplishments is infectious I would highly recommend this book to any ADULT who has even the slightest scientific proclivity or interest Beginners or otherwise in recent years there hav...
