Review: The Descent of Man

User Review  - Josh Brown - Goodreads

5 stars for the part about why/how humans evolved from other species. 1 star for the part that is just scattershot armchair anthropology so embarrassingly laced with culturally conditioned presuppositions Darwin seems to have thought were scientific. Read full review

User Review  - Rachael Bundy - Goodreads
