About this book

Using comic-book style illustration combined with accessible but authoritative text, the Introducing: Graphic Guide series is a uniquely brilliant way to get your head around some of humankind's most thrilling ideas. In 1859, Charles Darwin shocked the world with a radical theory – evolution by natural selection. One hundred and fifty years later, his theory still challenges some of our most precious beliefs. This box set comprises three volumes. Introducing Evolution: A Graphic Guide, on 'Darwin's dangerous idea', takes a fresh look at the often misunderstood concepts of natural selection and the selfish gene. Introducing Darwin: A Graphic Guide the difficult progress from pre-Darwinian thinking to modern genetics, and the devastatingly important impact of one man on our fundamental understanding of biology, life and ourselves. Introducing Genetics: A Graphic Guide takes readers on a journey through this new science to the discovery of DNA and the heart of the human gene map. In everyday life, many of us increasingly have to make moral decisions where genetics plays a part.
