Product description


A book to treasure. A. N Wilson throws down the gauntlet on the very first line, 'Darwin was wrong' he begins. What follows is a sharply observed and wonderfully compelling analysis which evokes the Victorian titan brilliantly and challenges received wisdom. A work of scholarship that is hard to put down (Deborah Cadbury)

A lucid, elegantly written and thought-provoking social and intellectual history (Adrian Woolfson Evening Standard)

Hugely enjoyable . . . The picture of Darwin that emerges from this biography is a mixed one . . . Wilson unpicks these contradictions with a scientist's forensic skill and a novelist's imaginative touch (Robert Douglas Fairhurst Spectator)

As a historian trying to put Darwin in the context of his time, there is surely no better biographer than Wilson (Daisy Goodwin The Times)

Entertaining (Observer)

As bold, audacious and entertaining as I knew it would be (The Spectator, Books of the Year)

Book Description

A radical reappraisal of Charles Darwin from the bestselling author of Victoria: A Life
