Review: The Descent of Man

User Review  - Barry Cunningham - Goodreads

A very difficult read. I read it as an eBook on my iPhone, which made it doubly difficult because all the footnotes are interlineated in the text. Historically, the book is very important. Darwin had ... Read full review

Review: The Descent of Man

User Review  - Ross - Goodreads

Evolution is an area of major interest to me so it is curious I had never read "The Descent of Man." The reason is I had been told that there is no science in the book worth mentioning, and having now ... Read full review

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

Review: The Descent of Man

User Review  - Mikael - Goodreads

Where "The Voyage of the Beagle" is an informative page turner and "On The Origin of Species" of course a work of genius, "The Descent of Man" is really just a scatter-shot, hit-and-miss collection of ... Read full review
