Naxos AudioBooks launches a new introductory series 'In a Nutshell' with Darwin, marking the 200th anniversary of the birth of the English naturalist. Peter Whitfield explains how Darwin came to his revolutionary views following his voyage on the Beagle - and his initial reluctance to publish his findings.
Overall, I thought this book was really worth listening to. I liked it and would definitely recommend it to others. Darwin was a genius and all should know about the ideas he came up with.

This is a nice and gentle introduction. But it should perhaps be considered a first encounter. Nothing is done in depth, although his biography is given more weight than I expected. We'll need three or four sequels at least.
