Bad scan3 star

Disappointed that this copy lost all the ampersands, so "&c." appears everywhere as "c."35

The origin of a revolution5 star

This book is not an easy read, but it is very worthwhile. Darwin builds his argument for evolution with example after example gathered from decades of observation and scientific experimentation. At the very least, you marvel at how much Darwin was able to deduce using very basic scientific tools and the scientific method. At the most, you can read between the lines and be aware of the scientific revolution that is about to begin.55

Great and really helpful.5 star

The information aligns with the AP Biology curriculum and is a huge help. The ideas are still relevant even today. The only downside is the language of the author being stuck in the 19th century. Other than that the book is extremely easy to understand and the information remains largely indisputable to this day.55

Too stupid for science? Try religion!5 star

It all makes sense. No faith required. This book doesn't consist of magical, talking, snakes or bushes. No miracles no propaganda. Just life55
