    A Quick Look at Darwin

    The main title is a little misleading; it suggests that this book is a record of Darwin's notes. The subtitle is more accurate. This is really a short biography of Darwin and a summary of his work and influence. What makes it interesting and helpful are the many maps, illustrations, photographs, and other graphic elements. A very enjoyable little book. It would make a great introduction to a study of Darwin.
