    On the Origin of Species by Charles Darwin (JeriMac)
    JeriMac: Charles Darwins 'Origin of the Species ' is one of the most profound and brilliant books I have ever read in my life! Darwin was a genius in the field of science. In the 1800's his theories and reason was mocked and jeered as crazy ideas although today we see Darwin as a scientific master who was able to see the connection between man and ape. The origins of the human species. This books is a true masterpiece and I highly recommend it.… (more)

The Origin of Species:
This groundbreaking 150 years old book is simply one of the most important book ever written. Changed the science and the way mankind looks and analyse the world so much it was impossible to even imagine before. Well written, easy to understand and stunning that it explains clearly many things which dumbhead creationists debating even today.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Easily the most influential book published in the nineteenth century, Darwin's The Origin of Species is also that most unusual phenomenon, an altogether readable discussion of a scientific subject.

"The Origin of Species is here published together with Darwin's earlier Voyage of the 'Beagle.' This 1839 account of the journeys to South America and the Pacific islands that first put Darwin on the track of his remarkable theories derives an added charm from his vivid description of his travels in exotic places and his eye for the piquant detail."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
