Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species is quite possibly the most influential science book ever written. The text has continued to fascinate readers and spark debates for over a century. The work was written in 1859, and is considered the foundation of evolutionary biology. The theory presented suggests that populations evolve over time through a process called natural selection. On the Origin of Species has been the centerpiece of heated debates between the scientific, philosophical and religious communities, indelibly affecting each discipline in its wake. The text is highly accessible, and written in pleasant prose, making the work both edifying and enjoyable. Darwin’s personable writing tone is complemented by Peter Wickham’s elegant reading style.
