A Modest Genius: The Story of Darwin's Life and How His Ideas Changed Everything - Sarah Darwin, Hanne Strager

This is pleasant to read and a good introduction to Darwin's ideas and how they relate to the history of geology, biology and theories of evolution. Unfortunately I am not getting a strong sense of the character of the man, which is what I am looking to gain. A case of wrong book rather than bad book and since it's a short book I intend to finish.
