Really good!

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.

Should be longer

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.
