Jones has taken up the challenge of rewriting Darwin's magnum opus, by combining Darwin's logic with the astonishing advances made since his time. The result is a great work of popular science, written with panache, economy and wit. It also deals brilliantly with the wider cultural impact of evolutionary ideas and the current debates. Jones takes issue with those who would explain human psychology in evolutionary terms, arguing that humans have been able to step beyond the constraints of biology.
Shortlised for the `1999 BP Natural World Book Prize'.
