5.0 out of 5 stars love it.
Charles Darwins, The Decent of Man is a book i've always wanted since a bbc show a few yrs ago. i was so pleased you could get it on kindle. i love amazon, you can get such a variety of books that you don't expect, untill you try. still reading this so i can only say that it is a good book. interesting, and worth trying especially if you are interested in mans past.

1.0 out of 5 stars No figures !!
Darwin makes frequent and important reference to figures (78 of them) in order to illustrate the significance of his arguments. The complete absence of figures in this 'free' version makes the book more or less impossible to read in the way intended by its author. My 1-star mark is directed at Amazon for publishing the book in this useless state rather than at Darwin's...

3.0 out of 5 stars A book to dip in, 22 Mar 2013

This review is from: The Descent of Man (Kindle Edition)
The style is a little off putting but for a little dip into the past it is a good read but I do find that I can only read ten or so pages at a time.

5.0 out of 5 stars One can hardly award fewer than maximum stars for this ..., 24 Oct 2014

This review is from: The Descent of Man (Kindle Edition)
One can hardly award fewer than maximum stars for this title, or rather to amazon for offering it on kindle for universal reading. Its importance for us all is immense and I have chosen it just to educate myself, though as a Christian I shan't read it uncritically, and may find that I disagree with some of its conclusions.

This review is from: The Descent of Man (Kindle Edition)
This is one of the first books I have read on my Kindle. It is a fascinating report, and I can understand how these ideas were thought of as heretical at the time.
