This book really helped her to understand who Darwin was, his historical context and why his discoveries were so important. As an adult I also found the book very engaging and educational and I found the final section on Darwin's legacy and the very clear explanation of his theories about natural selection genuinely enlightening. - E.F., Amazon customer
