This book presents the thinking & the groundwork for the period immediately before Darwin's 1859 book "On the Origin of Species". Darwin conceived his theory in 1838 but said that if he had published 20 years earlier the world wouldn't have been ready for it. The narration is excellent but even better are the short parenthetical explanations of technical terms which are slipped in as if they were a natural part of the writing.
THIS TECHNIQUE WHICH SHOULD BE USED IN ALL AUDIOBOOKS WITH A TECHNICAL BENT.

Very good listen. Infrequently dry but always engaging, this book covers a realm of the history of science that's generally left out, namely some of fascinating characters who made up the early fossilists. Highly recommended for anyone interested in science.
