The definitive book on Darwin's life and work for the 200th anniversary of his birth and the 150th anniversary of THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES. THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES is the most famous book in science but its stature tends to obscure the genius of Charles Darwin's other works. Darwin wrote six million words, in nineteen books and innumerable letters, on topics as different as dogs, barnacles, insect-eating plants, orchids, earthworms, apes and human emotion. Together, they laid the foundations of modern biology.
