The Voyage of the Beagle: Charles Darwin's Journal of Researches (Penguin Classics) by Charles Darwin
The Voyage of the Beagle: Charles Darwin's Journal of Researches (Penguin Classics)

ericmc, February 9, 2007

Read the Voyage of the Beagle in any edition. This one in particular is fine, I'm sure.

It is not what you think it's going to be. The bearded Darwin that we all have in mind is another man entirely than the man you meet in this book.

Imagine listening to your coolest uncle tell you adventure stories from his world travels. Now imagine that they are all true. That's what it's like to read this book.

Moreover, it is terrific to hear Darwin hint at the profound realizations he had come to about evolution and ecology in this journal before he actually let the other shoe drop.

Fantastic.
