    1. Interesting but flawed. The travel reports were mildly amusing, but on the whole this book is a funny mixture of a travel book, Darwin commentary and popular science exposition on evolution. I found the use of profanity jarred a little in the dialogue, and the writing style changed from a sort of Barry Crump hunting story to a populist science explanation. I did not disagree with most of his observations, but the author needed to decide which book he was writing. Where are the editors I question [...]

    2. I really enjoyed this book. Part travel memoir, part history, part biography of Darwin. Entertaining and thought provoking.
