Para calcular a classificação geral de estrelas e a análise percentual por estrela, não usamos uma média simples. Em vez disso, nosso sistema considera coisas como se uma avaliação é recente e se o avaliador comprou o item na Amazon. Ele também analisa avaliações para verificar a confiabilidade.
I liked finding out about some circumstances of his life, and enjoyed his writing. However, it is very much centered on his scientific life, and I would have liked to read more about his personal life.
Not a shadow of the Voyage of the Beagle but a useful complement to better understand the achievements of that trip and Darwin's later work. Pity there is so little personal colour from his working life, but of interest to committed Darwin fans.
Darwin's family had Charles' biography censored, and Nora Barlow's edition is the only complete version available. If it doesn't say "edited by Nora Barlow," be aware that it is not the unexpurgated edition, the one intended by Charles. That is my reason for giving this edition 3 stars. Otherwise, Barlow's edition gets 5 stars. There is much that is controversial and interesting that isn't in this edition, so I highly recommend that you drop a few bucks on that edition. This is a sufficient ersatz, if need be, but you are missing out.
